Your NCAA Core GPA

The GPA on your high school transcript consists of all the courses you have taken and is weighted to reflect honors & AP courses. Your Core GPA as calculated by the NCAA only consists of English, math, social studies, and science courses. Honors and AP points are not factored into your GPA by the NCAA. 

Obtain Your Transcript

Before you can calculate your Core GPA, you must obtain a copy of your high school transcript. You should check with your high school counselor for your transcript. Keep in mind that your GPA varies every semester as you complete more courses. It's a good idea to check your Core GPA at the end of every semester.
