# Phase 3: Computation of Final Degree and Cumulative GPA - January 2015

The final phase in the conversion is the computation of students' final degree and cumulative GPA values as a representation of their overall performance. This information - Total Institution, Total Transfer, Overall and Degree GPAs - is listed as "Transcript Totals" on the official and unofficial transcripts.

Basic Formulae 2 is used to compute the final Total Institution, Total Transfer, Overall and Degree GPAs as follows:

Total Institution (TI):

(Previous TI GPA Hours X Converted TI GPA ) + (2014/2015 TI GPA Hours X 2014/2015 TI GPA) Previous TI GPA Hours + 2014/2015 TI GPA Hours

Total Transfer (TT):

(Previous TT GPA Hours X Converted TT GPA ) + (2014/2015 TT GPA Hours X 2014/2015 TT GPA) Previous TT GPA Hours + 2014/2015 TT GPA Hours

Overall (OA)

(Previous OA GPA Hours X Converted OA GPA ) + (2014/2015 OA GPA Hours X 2014/2015 OA GPA) Previous OA GPA Hours + 2014/2015 OA GPA Hours

Degree (DEG)

(Previous DEG GPA Hours X Converted DEG GPA ) + (2014/2015 DEG GPA Hours X 2014/2015 DEG GPA) Previous Degree GPA Hours + 2014/2015 Degree GPA Hours

Degree 32.0000 43.00000 99.7800 2.2774 2.7128 2.3989 2.40

Combined Total Institution GPA= (50.0000 x 2.1366) + (31.0000 x 2.2774) / (50.0000 + 31.0000) = 2.1904

Combined Total Transfer Degree GPA= (7.0000 x 0.0000) + (0.0000 x 0.0000) / (7.0000 + 0.0000) = 0.0000

Combined Overall Degree GPA= (50.0000 x 2.1366) + (31.0000 x 2.2774) / (50.0000 + 31.0000) = 2.1904

Combined Degree GPA= (12.0000 x 2.7128) + (31.0000 x 2.2774) / (12.0000 + 31.0000) = 2.3989
