GPA stands for Grade Point Average and is used to convert the American "Letter grade" into a numerical value. By this calculation an "A" is 4.0, "B" is 3.0, "C" is 2.0 and "D" is 1.0. Your grade point is calculated by multiplying your grade value by your credit hours (generally 3 credit hours per course). For example the grade point of an "A" would be 12 points and 6 points for a "C". To calculate the average all grade points are combined and divided by the total number of credit hours.

For example: if you take 4 classes, each worth 3 credit hours, your calculation for two "As" and two "Cs" would follow: 12 credit hours divided into 36 credit points, making your GPA 3.0 or "B" average.
