 How to Calculate your GPA (Grade Point Average)
Your cumulative grade point average is the average of your grades overall, i.e., of all the grades throughout your college career (though for transfer students, your cumulative GPA here is the aggregate of courses taken at Wells or Wells-affiliated programs).
Your cumulative GPA is the one used to determine if you are in good academic standing, if you can graduate, if you are to be placed on probation, etc. When someone asks you what your grade point average is, they will almost always mean your cumulative grade point average.
Grade point averages are computed for courses in which you earn grades A-F and U, and their plus and minus forms.
