Waseda University uses an evaluation system with a set of conversion rates called Grade Point(4 points for A+, 3 points for A, 2points for B,1 point for C, and zero point for Falling Grades ).A Grade Point Average(GPA) is a score calculated by multiplying “total number of credits by grade point(A+, A, B etc.)” and “corresponding grade point(4 for A+, 3 for A etc.)”, then totaling the obtained figures for the all grades and dividing the result by “total number of registered credits.”
The total number of registered credits includes credits earned for falling grades.
This will be calculated in the following formula:
[(No. of A+ credits x 4) + (No. of A credits x 3) + (No. of B credits x 2) + (No. of C credits x 1) + (No. of Falling grades x 0)]
Total number of registered credits
*The GPA will be rounded to the second decimal place.
*Subjects used in the GPA calculation
The GPA calculation considers only the subjects registered as the subjects to count toward graduate credits. However, the following cases will not
be subject to the GPA calculation even if the subject is counted toward graduate credits.
・N,P,Q,H( H grades is included in the GPA calculation after the subjects in question are finally confirmed to have passed or failed. )
*GPA on Grade Report and Transcript of Academic Record.: Please note that the GPA will appear on the Grade Report, but not on
the Transcript of Academic Record. We can issue a “Transcript or Academic Record / GPA” indicating the GPA and the grades used in the GPA calculation.
