GPA Calculation

Semester GPA: it is the GPA calculated for the credit hours completed for one semester.
Cumulative GPA: it is the GPA calculated for the credit hours completed for all the semesters

Calculating Semester’s GPA
  • Calculate “Course Points” for each registered course for the specific semester, according to the following equation:
    Calculate Points = course grade * number of course credits
  • Calculate the sum of all courses’ points for that semester:
    Total courses’ points = the sum of all courses points of a semester
  • Semester GPA:
    Total courses’ points of the semester / total courses credits of that semester
Calculating Cumulative GPA
  • Calculate “course points” for each course registered according to the following equation:
    Course points = Course grade value x number of course credits
  • Calculate the sum of all courses points for all semesters:
    Total courses’ points = the sum of all courses’ points of all semesters

Semester GPA and Cumulative GPA are out of score of five.

The overall gradation grade assigned according to the last cumulative GPA, is out of five and can be described as a “grade” according to the following classification:

  • “Excellent” for GPAs 4.50 and above.
  • “Very Good” for GPAs from 3.75 to less than 4.50.
  • “Good” for GPAs from 2.75 to less than 3.75.
  • “Satisfactory” for GPAs from 2.00 to less than 2.75.
