How to Calculate Your Projected GPA
Instructions on calculating your GPA
- List all courses, the number of hours and choose the letter grade you expect to achieve.
- Entering the course name is optional
- Do not include developmental courses that do not impact your cumulative GPA. These courses will have DS as the first letters of the course (i.e., DS048, DS015 are developmental.)
- Check the Repeat box if the course is repeated.
Other helpful information
- Transferred credit is not used to calculate the NCMC grade point average
- Use all post high school grades to figure A+ eligibility
- Use all college credit to figure Associate in Arts in Teaching (AAT) GPA
- Athletic eligibility is calculated using NJCAA guidelines.
