Information on NYU Grading is available from the Registrar's Office.
The Grade point average (GPA) can be obtained by determining the total of all grade points earned (quality points) and dividing that figure by the total number of credit hours completed (quality hours). For example: a student who has completed 8 points of A (4.0), 4 points of B (3.0), and 4 points of C (2.0) has a grade point average of 3.25. This is obtained by adding 8 (points of A) x 4.0 (point value of A), 4 (points of B) x 3.0 (point value of B), and 4 (points of C) x 2.0 (point value of C), which totals 52 (the total of all grade points earned), and then by dividing 52 by 16 (the total number of credit hour completed). This gives the grade point average of 3.25.
A student's semester GPA is the weighted mean value of all grade points he/she earned in a semester. A student's cumulative GPA is the weighted mean value of all grade points that have been taken at NYU so far.
