The total grade points divided by the sum of course weights = GPA.
36.00 = 2.67 GPA
Grade – The grade is the final letter grade assigned in a course (A+, A, A-…)
Grade Points – Each grade is assigned a number of grade points according to the following scale (effective May 1, 2002):
A+ = 4.00
A = 4.00
A- = 3.70
B+ = 3.30
B = 3.00
B- = 2.70
C+ = 2.30
C = 2.00
C- = 1.70
D+ = 1.30
D = 1.00
F = 0.00
Course Weight – The number of credits a course is worth equals the course weight. Most University of Lethbridge courses are worth 3 credits and thus weighted at 3.00. You can find the weight of a course in the course description section of the Academic Calendar or on your working copy transcript in the column “Wght”.
Total Grade Points – For each course, total grade points are calculated by multiplying the course grade points by the course weight.
Current (Term) GPA – The current GPA is calculated on all graded courses completed in a given semester. Current GPA is sometimes also referred to as the term GPA.
Cumulative GPA – The cumulative GPA is the average of all graded courses completed at the University of Lethbridge at a given level (undergraduate or graduate).
