Major GPA Calculator

Calculating Your Major Grade Point Average

To graduate, you must maintain a 2.0 grade point average, not only in your cumulative grade point average, but also in the courses in your major (your major grade point average). The courses included in the calculation for your major grade point average can be found listed on the course plan for your major or in the UCR General Catalog.

The UCR General Catalog can be found at

Just like your cumulative and quarter GPAs, your major GPA is a weighted average of all the letter graded courses included in the calculation. Transfer courses from non-UC schools do not count in the GPA.

The Major GPA calculation form can help you with the step-by-step process

If you need an idea of the classes, check the list of courses to include in the upper-division major GPA calculation.
