University of Calgary Calendar 2018-2019 Academic Regulations F. Academic Standing F.4 Grade Point Average
F.4 Grade Point Average

All grades are used in the calculation of yearly grade point averages, both for purposes of the official transcript of record and cumulative grade point averages determined by the faculties. When determining a grade point average, the average will be based on the second decimal point and will not be rounded. For example, a GPA calculated at 2.999 will be 2.99.

For promotion or graduation, refer to individual faculty sections for requirements.

To determine the grade point average, the course grade point is multiplied by the unit value of the course (e.g. 6 units or a full-course equivalent) to determining the weighting. The weightings are added together then divided by the total number of units to determine the grade point average (GPA).

Example: A student who completed two, 6-unit and four, 3-unit courses with grades would have the grade point average computed as follows:
