Do you know you can calculate your GPA? Here is how.

GPA Calculator: https://www.nmsu.edu/ONLINE/gpa/index.php
This calculator is helpful to determine what your semester GPA might be.
 
Semester Schedule Example:

OETS 104 – 4 credits, will probably receive grade of “B” for the course
AUTO 112 – 5 credits, will probably receive grade of “A” for the course
 
Input the following into the appropriate spots:
