Calculating your GPA (linked through Valencia College)

Ways to strengthen your GPA

  1. Speak with your advisor or a counselor about your schedule.  It’s easier to avoid a tough situation than it is to get out of one.
  2. Communicate often and well with your instructors regarding assignments, grades and other issues effecting your course performance.
  3. Ask about the Repeat Course Policy for courses in which you receive a “D” or “F” (policy is given below).
  4. Utilize all tutoring resources and utilize them early and often!
  5. Ask your advisor or contact the Counseling Center about signing up for independent study courses that are designed to improve your academic/career/personal skills.
  6. Get off to a strong start; it makes a world of difference!
