The grade-point average is a weighted average. This means that you cannot simply average your grades, but must also account for each course's point value.
The grade-point average printed on Barnard transcripts is your Barnard GPA. It includes only classes that you took during the academic year as a registered Barnard student. It does not include work done at other institutions, such as study leave or summer school coursework. Any grades indicated on the transcript in parentheses are not included in the Barnard GPA.
To calculate your GPA, follow these steps:
If you attended Barnard under the course system (rather than the point system), you should use the course value (e.g. 1.0 or 1.25) instead of point value.
If you wish to calculate your overall GPA, include all courses. For your Barnard GPA, include only courses taken during the academic year while you were a registered Barnard student. For your major GPA, include only courses in your major.
