PART III. Academic Information

Summary of Grades for Science & Non-Science Courses by Year: Calculate your grade-point average for each category requested. Convert letter grades to numbers for each course, using the conversion A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 F=0. Then multiply grade (number x credit hours) for each course in that category. Sum the products and divide that total by the total number of credit hours taken.

All courses, including those failed or repeated, should be included in your GPA. If your grades can be converted to the U.S. system (4.0 scale), please do so as it will facilitate the review process. Typically, successful applicants have an overall GPA over 3.0 and grades of B or better in science courses.
