GPA Conversion: 5.0 –> 4.0 scale

Just wanted to send this information out concerning how to convert 5.0 GPAs to 4.0 scale.

 

This practice is a bit hand wavy- meaning that its not very accurate way to define the GPA. If, for instance, someone has a 3.0 out of 5, that converts into a 2.4 out of 4…. when in the Saudi school system, a 3.0 out of 5 is probably much better than a 2.4 in the US depending on the university, such as King Fahad University of Petroleum and Minerals.

 

It would be wise to recommend that the students have their transcripts professionally evaluated by WES…. www.wes.org  however, this takes time to process and could stymie our speed.

 

In the meantime here is a calculator to determine the conversion: http://em.tsu.edu/registrar/gpacc.php
