Cumulative GPA Calculator: Finding a cumulative GPA is essential for college students. GPA comes with several advantages, so here we are giving the steps on how to calculate cumulative GPA. In addition, you can also know what cumulative grade point average is and others are on this page.

## What is Cumulative GPA?

A cumulative GPA is nothing but the average grade points of all your semesters in school or college. In other words, it is the average of averages that combines these semester GPAs and represents a single GPA. It is helpful to get admission to college or for job application.

### How to Calculate Cumulative GPA?

Both colleges and employers use cumulative GPA as the measure of success. The following are the guidelines to calculate the cumulative grade point average for all semesters in your college or high school.

• Firstly, you have to get the semester GPAs and credit hours.
• Calculate your total credit points by multiplying the semester's GPA by the number of credit hours.
• Find the sum of the credit hours and total credit points to know the cumulative total point.
• Divide the total points by total credit hours to obtain the cumulative GPA.

### Example of Cumulative Grade Point Average

Calculate the GPA for 4 semesters.

 Semester Name GPA Credit Hours Semester A 3.6 12 Semester B 3.5 13 Semester C 4.0 12 Semester D 4.6 11

Solution:

Given that,

• Semester A: 3.6 GPA for 12 credit hours
• Semester B: 3.5 GPA for 13 credit hours
• Semester C: 4.0 GPA for 12 credit hours
• Semester D: 4.6 GPA for 11 credit hours

Calculate the total points earned for every semester.

• Semester A: 3.6 x 12 = 43.2 total points
• Semester B: 3.5 x 13 = 45.5 total points
• Semester C: 4.0 x 12 = 48 total points
• Semester D: 4.6 x 11 = 50.6 total points

Find the sum of credit hours

12 + 13 + 12 + 11 = 48

Also, get the sum of all total points

43.2 + 45.5 + 48 + 50.6 = 141.8

Divide cumulative points by total credit hours

141.8/48 = 2.95

So, the cumulative GPA is 2.95.
