GPA Calculator

Welcome to the NIU GPA Calculator. You can use this tool to compute your current semester, cumulative and target GPA.

  • Step 1: Answer the two questions in the “This Semester GPA” section, and click “Get Started!”
  • Step 2: Fill out the table of courses, hours, and expected grades, and click “Calculate Semester GPA.”
  • Step 3: Provide your previous cumulative GPA and hours completed, and click “Calculate Cumulative GPA.”
  • Step 4: Provide your desired final GPA and hours remaining before graduation, and click “Calculate Target GPA.”

Results are dynamically updated for you. For example, when you have computed your target GPA, any changes you make to the semester GPA information will automatically be reflected in the cumulative and the target GPA. Use this feature to answer the 'what if' questions you might have. Have fun!
