Institutions require a specific Grade Point Average (GPA) for admission and varies by undergraduate and graduate programs. GPA is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Please be aware that this is not an official GPA calculation. US colleges and universities may convert grades differently than the grades converted by this translator. Countries use different grading scales.
