There are two types of GPAs: Semester and Cumulative. The semester GPA is calculated using the courses taken in that semester. The cumulative GPA is a summary of all FIU courses taken in your academic career.
To calculate a GPA, first multiply the number of course credits/semester hours for each course by the grade point values associated with the grade received in that course. Then add all of those totals together and divide that sum by the total number of course credits/semester hours.
For a semester GPA, use all regularly graded courses in that semester (plus P/F courses in which an F or U was earned), and for the cumulative GPA use all courses. Do not average semester GPAs in order to calculate the cumulative GPA.
