The York GPA Calculator helps you calculate your Grade Point Average (GPA). If a course has not been completed and a final grade has not been assigned, it will not be included in your calculations. If you have repeated a course, only the most recent attempt will be used in the calculation. The Target GPA calculator will help you determine the grades you will need to achieve a specific GPA.
Please note that the GPA Calculator is not an official record of grades. Grades are reported by the Registrar's Office at the end of each academic session. The York Transcript reflects the official and unofficial record of all courses and grades taken through York University.
Acknowledgement: York's GPA Calculator was inspired by a GPA Calculator created by the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS). The York GPA Calculator benefitted greatly from the previous iteration and we wanted to thank the team for their contributions.
|Grade Point Average or GPA||Your grade point average or GPA is a numeric representation of the grades you earned in a set of courses. It is a weighted average and is assessed at the end of each academic session and cumulatively to degree completion.|
|GPA Calculation||Calculations are based on the grade point value assigned to each letter grade as well as the credit value associated with that grade point value.|
Grades are reported by the Registrar at the end of each academic session. The York transcript is the official record of all courses and grades taken through York University.
Note: Grades for the current session have placeholder values and are accompanied by an "Official Grade Not Yet Available" marker in the information column.
|Sessional GPA||A sessional GPA is based on course grades earned within a specific academic session.|
|Cumulative GPA||A cumulative GPA is the weighted average based on grades obtained in courses taken over all academic sessions.|
|Letter Grade||When a course finishes, you are assigned a letter grade for the course on a scale from A+ to F. Every letter grade corresponds to a specific grade point value (GPV).|
|Grade Point Value or GPV||The grade point value is a numeric representation of a letter grade on a scale from 0 to 9. The tables under the Letter Grade Point Values heading show the correspondence between letter grades and grade point values.|
|Credit Weights||Individual courses also have credit weights. For example, a course might be worth 3 credits or 6 credits. You can see the credit weight at the end of a course ID: AP/HIST 1040 6.00 is worth 6 credits; SC/CHEM 2011 3.00 is worth 3 credits.|
|Weighted Grade Points||Because courses vary in credit weight, a GPA is calculated using weighted grade points — that is, the result of multiplying an earned grade point value by the course credit weight. Courses with larger credit weights therefore contribute more to a GPA result than courses with smaller credit weights.|
Some courses are not supported by the GPA calculator and have an "Unsupported Course" marker in the information column. Either the course belongs to a faculty/subject combination that does not calculate GPAs, or it does not have a grading scheme.
Note: York University does not include the GPV of these courses toward your GPA. It is advised that the courses remain excluded in the calculator for an accurate GPA result.
