Grade point average

Grading System

At the end of each course, the instructor will submit a letter grade for every student registered. Using the grade point equivalents listed below, Grade Point Averages (GPA) are calculated for the evaluation of:

  • academic achievement
  • academic standing, including Honours standing
  • prizes and awards


Grade Grade points
A+ 4.30
A- 3.70
B+ 3.30
B- 2.70
C+ 2.30
C-* 1.70
D+ 1.30
D- 0.70
F, FNS 0
GNR (Grade not reported)  0

*NOTE: Although a "C-" grade is designated as Satisfactory, a weighted grade point average of at least 2.00 for the assessment period is required for acceptable standing at the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science.

Annual grade point average

An Annual Weighted Grade Point Average (WGPA) for each student is calculated at the end of each academic year (including the Summer, Fall and Winter terms), provided that the student has attempted a minimum of 12 credits. If the student has attempted fewer than 12 credits, these credits will be included in the assessment for the following academic year.
