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.
