Explanation of UB Letter Grades and Grade Point Values
For grading purposes each letter grade has a specific grade point value:
A = 4.00 (High Distinction)
A- = 3.67 (High Distinction)
B+ = 3.3 (Superior)
B = 3.00 (Superior)
B- = 2.67 (Superior)
C+ = 2.33 (Average)
C = 2.00 (Average)
C- = 1.67 (Average)
D+ = 1.33 (Minimum Passing Grade)
D = 1.00 (Minimum Passing Grade)
F = 0.00 (Failure)
To review UB’s Grading policies refer to the Undergraduate Catalog: Grading Section – Explanation of Grades.
Computing a Grade Point Average (gpa)
To compute a grade point average, determine the total number of “Letter Graded credit hours”. Then determine the Grade Points earned for each course (number of credit hours multiplied by the Grade Point value for that Letter grade). Next, add up the grade points earned for each course. Finally, divide the total number of grade points earned by the total number of “letter grade credit hours”.
