GPA Calculator

When considering options for transferring, your cumulative grade point average (GPA) at NWACC matters. The following information provides guidance for calculating your GPA. When considering admission standards at four-year universities and pre-professional programs within health and allied health professions, it's important to keep track of your GPA as you contemplate transfer opportunities.

Science GPA

In many cases, health science programs will isolate a student's science gpa when determining admissibility.

The "D" rule!

"Ds" don't transfer, but they are factored in to your cumulative gpa by admission offices when determining admissibility. When a student receives a "D," that grade will always remain on the official transcript, even though the credit will not be awarded at the transfer institution.

Transfer Rule of Thumb

In general, the cumulative grade point average needed to gain admission to a four-year institution as a "transfer" student is a 2.0. To be considered a "transfer" student, you must have earned 24 transferrable hours. If this applies to you, utilize the "gpa calculator" below to figure out what your current GPA is. This will help you get an accurate picture of where you are and where you need to go.
