After you’ve graduated from high school or earned your GED, the doors of universities and colleges will open up for you. If you thought your GPA stopped mattering once you entered college, I’m sorry to tell you that you’re wrong.
Colleges themselves will use your GPA for a variety of things — you’ll need a good GPA to stay in good academic standing, and your financial aid and scholarships will probably have a minimum GPA that you need to stay above. Sports may require a specific GPA, and other awards and bonuses will be given out according to your GPA. At graduation, different honors may also be assigned to you as well.
Your GPA (grade point average) can be calculated if you divide all earned grade points by the number of attempted credit hours. Your GPA may be ranging from 0.0 to 4.0.
