Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA)

First Nations University of Canada uses the grade point average (GPA) to determine your academic standing. Your GPA is calculated as follows: 

Academic standing is determined by use of a grade point average (GPA), calculated by:

(1) multiplying, for each course, the credit hours by the grade earned, 

(2) adding together the products of that multiplication, 

(3) adding together the credit hours for the courses used, and 

(4) dividing the first sum by the second. 

The calculation is not rounded but is truncated to two decimal places. Only percentage grades, grades of NP, and grades of XF are used in GPA calculations. Grades of 0%-39% and NP are all counted as 40% in the calculation, grades of XF are counted as 0%, and grades of 40% to 100% are used as recorded. 

Calculation: 

  1. Multiplying, for each course, the credit hours by the grade earned:
    ENGL 100: 3 x 73 = 219
    BUS 100: 3 x 78 = 234
    INDG 100: 3 x 88 = 264  
  2. Adding together the products of that multiplication:
    219 + 234 + 264 = 717 
  3. Adding together the credit hours for the courses used:
    3 + 3 + 3 = 9 
  4. Dividing the first sum by the second sum:
    717/9 = 79.66 GPA
