Managing Your Grades
WARNING! This calculator is not tied to the Aurora University student records system. The results are based only on the data you supply.
This calculator is not intended to be used for checking your current GPA. It should only be used to help predict your GPA for the semester.

Students may use this calculator to estimate the outcome of this semester's grades on their overall Aurora University cumulative grade point average.

Your term/semester GPA is the grade point average that you earned for a single semester or “term”, so it is the numerical weighted average of your class grades. Your cumulative grade point average is the numerical weighted average of the grades you’ve earned over your entire college career at Aurora University.
Enter the total number of credit hours that your class is worth in the Credits/Hours field. A typical class is 4 credit hours, but there are a lot of variations including labs, music, activity courses.

While the credit hours for courses you earned at other institutions transfer to AU, your grade point average from your former school does not.
If you have been enrolled at AU for only one semester, you will not have a cumulative GPA until after you complete the semester. In this case, your term GPA for your first semester is equivalent to your cumulative GPA.
