Grade Chart & GPA

The Wesleyan GPA is calculated on the numeric grade.  As a service to students we also provide an alternate GPA on the transcript that is converted from the Wesleyan GPA by subtracting 55 and dividing the remainder by 10.  This calculation could result in an alternate GPA that is higher than 4.0.  To calculate a true 4.0 GPA use the chart below.  Find the 4.0 GPA equivalent numeric value of the letter grade. Multilpy this by the credit value of the class.  This is the grade point value for the class.  Sum the grade point values and divide this number by the sum of the credits and this will produce your 4.0 grade point average.
