Understand Your Grades

If you are looking at your transcript and wondering what certain notations mean, here is a good place to start.

If you’re interested in figuring out a projected Grade Point Average (GPA), you’ll need to know what Michigan Honor Points are and how they are used to calculate your GPA.

Very briefly, you arrive at your term GPA by dividing the total number of Michigan Honor Points (MHP) by the total number of Michigan Semester Hours (MSH) during the same term. That is, GPA = MHP / MSH.
