Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

All course credits where a letter grade is issued are factored into a student’s term and cumulative GPA.

A student’s grade-point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the number of grade points earned by the number of units attempted. The total grade points earned for a course equals the number of grade points assigned times the number of course units. For example, if a student takes three 3-credit courses and receives grades of A-, C+, and F, then the GPA for the term equals the total grade points (3.67*3) + (2.33*3) + (0*3) = 18 divided by the total course units (9). The resulting GPA is 2.00.

Students are required to be in good academic standing and must earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00 in all coursework attempted at UoPeople and earn an overall grade point average of at least 2.00 in all courses taken in the major area of study in order to graduate from University of the People.
