^{1}Other grades (W, X, Y, etc.) are not included in the GPA calculation. ^{2}Grades E1, E2, E3, E4, E5, and E8 are equivalent to an E.
Multiply the grade point value by the number of semester hours for which the course was taken to determine.honor points.
Add together all the honor points.
Add together all the semester hours that received one of the above grades to determine net hours.
Divide the honor points by net hours to calculate the GPA.

Notes:
GPAs are rounded to the nearest 100th of a grade point.
Although the plus/minus scale includes a grade of A+ with a value of 4.33, the cumulative GPA is capped at 4.0.
ASU’s grade scale includes plus/minus grades in one-third increments of whole numbers, which may cause the Honor Points displayed on a student’s record to be a few one-hundredths of a point higher or lower than the results of a manual calculation; however, this minor mathematical discrepancy will not affect the resulting GPA.
Use the following Grade Point Values to calculate the Honor Points that are displayed on the student’s record:

Multiply the grade point value by the number of semester hours for which the course was taken and divide this total by three to determine honor points.
