GPA/grade points/units calculations

  1. Hi, My name is Kathy and this is my first post. I am an ADN student graduating in December and am going on to pursue my RN to BSN at Sac State. Does anyone know how to calculate units to grade points for quarter classes to GPA? I am confused. Also, how do you calculate semester units to grade points and GPA. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, I'm not sure if this is what you need because I go by semesters but this is how I think it's done
    For semester units to quarter units you add up your credit hours and multiply the total by 1.5, then you add up your grade points(The total number of credit hours by the number of pts you earned so for a 4 credit hour class if you got an A you would get 4pts=16 grade pts.) and multiply that number by 1.5. Next you divide the total hours attempted by the grade points.

    To change quarter units to semester units you multiply
    total credit hours x .667
    total grade pts x .667
    divide total credit hours by grade pts
