GPA Calculator and Predictor

This tool is to help students better understand where they stand academically and how retaking a class in which they received below a C- may help their cumulative GPA improve.  In order for this to be the most accurate, it is important that a student is realistic in predicting what scores they may receive, enter exact numbers from their previous student record, and understand how a GPA is calculated

To predict a cumulative GPA for in progress or preregistered courses:

1) The student needs to gather the most recent cumulative GPA information on myOswego

      Go to the Registration Tab
      Click on Display Grades
      Choose the most recent completed semester
      Scroll down to the Undergraduate Summary to find the cumulative GPA information

2)  Enter your cumulative quality points and cumulative GPA Hours (credits) into the chart below.
      The result should match your current cumulative GPA

3)  Enter the number of courses currently being taken that a grade will be earned.

**The following grades do not count towards your GPA here at Oswego:

  • Grades taken at other institutions (if the student repeats a D or E class at another institution it removes the grade but does not replace it in their GPA.)
  • Pass/Fail courses or courses graded with an H, S, or U or incompletes (Be aware that an incomplete turns to an E if the work is not made up within six weeks of the next semester).
  • Courses from which the student has withdrawn

4)  Enter the in progress or pre-registered courses and enter the number of credits for each course on the far right.

5)  Realistically predict what the grade may be in each class and enter those grades.  This will give an idea what the student can expect for the cumulative GPA with out retaking any previous courses.

How to predict how retaking a course in which the student previously earned a D+ or lower will effect the cumulative GPA:

6)  Check the "retaking" box, if the student is retaking a course that he or she took at Oswego and previously recieved a grade lower than a C-.

7)  If the student is retaking the course at a different college uncheck the Oswego box (make sure the student has filled out an off campus approval form). Classes taken elsewhere will remove the previous grade from the GPA but the new grade will not be added into the GPA. Remember, retaking courses may effect financial aid so make sure the student speaks to the financial aid office before retaking a course.
