How to Calculate your GPA:

Students are assigned a letter grade for each course taken.  Course credits may vary.

Each letter grade carries a numerical grade point value as per the table to the right.

The Grade Point for each course (as seen in your Student Record Course Enrolment History) is calculated by multiplying the number of course credits by the grade value. 

The Grade Point Average (as seen at the top of each term in your Course Enrolment History) is the total grade points for all courses divided by total credits attempted. 

Note: Credits for courses with a GP of zero (F or UW) are included.  There is no GP or course credit to use in the calculation for courses with CR or official WDR

The Grade Point Average for the year (May 1 to April 30 for Probation and Suspension purposes) is calculated by total grade points for all courses taken over the year divided by total credits attempted over the year. 

Note:  Do not add GPA from one semester to that of second semester and divide by two for the average as this may not be accurate is credit load differs between terms. 


Student takes 3 courses in the term.  One is a 3 credit course, one is 4 credits, and the other is a 1 credit course.
