What is my Grade Point Average?

The grade point average (GPA) is a weighted average based on a student's grade points and credit hours. A grade point is a number between 0 and 4.00 that is assigned to a grade (alpha or percentage). A credit hour is a value assigned to a course, normally either 3 or 6 credits.

The calculation method, as well as conversion charts, can be found in AU's Undergraduate Grading Policy and Graduate Grading Policy.

You can preview your GPA by logging onto myAU, selecting the "Request Transcripts" option under Student Record in the left-hand navigation menu.

For more information about your GPA, email the Academic Records unit at or contact the Information Centre.
