What is a GPA?

Letter grades have a numerical value called a Grade Point Value, which is used to calculate your grade point average or GPA. Your GPA is the sum of all your final grades divided by your total number of credits. Specifically, 

  • Your semester or term GPA (TGPA) is the grade point average for all UFV coursework completed in one semester.
  • Your cumulative GPA (CGPA) is the grade point average for all coursework completed at UFV. 

To learn more about the letter grading system and grading scale, review UFV's Grading and Academic Standing information.


Why is your GPA important?

Your GPA measures your academic achievement and can determine: 

  • your admissibility to universities, colleges, programs, and courses
  • your eligibility to apply for scholarships and financial aid

      Course Grade Credits






      • Repeating courses
      • If you repeat a course, the higher mark will be used in your GPA calculation at UFV. This can help bring up your GPA at UFV. For more information about how to use the GPA calculator if you are repeating a course, it is recommended you meet with an academic advisor.


      • Transferring from another post-secondary institution
      • If you are transferring from another post-secondary institution, all of your university-level credits will be used to determine your GPA for admission to a UFV program.
      • When you are admitted to a UFV program, your GPA for graduation is based on your UFV courses.
