HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR CUMULATIVE GPA
STEP 1:
Obtain a copy of transcripts from El Camino College and eliminate the classes
that do not have a letter grade (such as W, I, CR, NC, P, NP).
STEP 2:
Add up the units attempted for each class and the grade points for those classes
listed. Grade points are calculated by multiplying units attempted by the grade point value
for the grade received in each class.
A = 4 points
B = 3 points
C = 2 points
D = 1 points
F = 0 points
STEP
3:
Once you have added all units attempted and the grade points, calculate your GPA
by dividing the number of grade points by units attempted.
Grade Points ÷ Units attempted = GPA Example:

F = 0
4x0= 0

47 grade points ÷ 23 units attempted = 2.043 GPA
Note:
“D” and “F” grades are calculated into GPA. CR/NC and P/NP courses are not
calculated into the GPA.
NOTE: ** Make sure you consult with the ECC Catalog and see if a course is
transferable or not to calculate your transferable GPA – under the title of the course,
it will say “Transfer CSU” or “Transfer CSU, UC.”
