How the unweighted GPA is calculated for NHS?

  • This information can also be found in the high school Course Offerings Book.

  • The unweighted GPA is calculated by multiplying a student’s final course grade with the credits for that course.

  • The sum of all courses is then divided by the total credits.

  • A student’s unweighted GPA will appear on their transcript and is also used in determining eligibility for National Honor Society.

  • Please note that Honor and Merit Roll are awarded based on a student’s raw unweighted average for an individual marking quarter.

  • The raw unweighted average is calculated by determining the mean average, regardless of the credits that the course is worth.

  • Your updated GPA can be seen in Naviance.

  • Students GPA is updated in Naviance each September and March.

  • You must have a 91.5 unweighted average to receive an application.

  • Contact your counselor if you are unable to login to Naviance.
