GPA Calculation

A student’s Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated as follows:

  • Course Grade Points Achieved - multiply the grade points for the grade achieved by the course weight
  • Total Grade Points Achieved - Sum the Course Grade Points Achieved
  • Total Course Weights - Sum of the course weights for each course taken
  • GPA - Divide the Total Grade Points Achieved by the Total Course Weights

Only the most recent attempt of a repeated course is included in the above calculations.

  • The grade earned for a repeated course is used for calculating Grade Point Averages, even if it is lower than the original grade.
  • Both attempts at the course are re corded on the student's transcript.

There are three types of GPA calculation used at Ryerson:

  • Term Grade Point Average
  • Cumulative Grade Point Average
  • Program Grade Point Average

These are all similar, but each is calculated using different course information and used for different purposes.
