CGPA vs. PGPA

In the PDD programs, the Program Grade Point Average (PGPA) is used for graduation purposes.

The PGPA is the weighted average of final grades earned in all credit courses at Langara applicable to a specific program. PGPA is calculated based on the most recent attempts of all required courses in the program. If a student repeats a course, only the most recent grade for that course will count.

However, the student’s transcript will always show the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), which is the weighted average of final grades earned in all credit courses at Langara in which the student has been enrolled. Unlike the PGPA, the CGPA counts all grades for all attempts at all courses.

For more information on CGPA and PGPA, please visit the Grade Point Average information page.

How to Calculate Your PGPA

To find your PGPA, multiply the letter grade point equivalent for all Langara courses on your transcript by the number of credits granted for all courses. Then add up these figures for all courses and divide the total by the total of credits for all courses you have attempted, not including courses resulting in ‘S’, ‘SR’, ‘U’ or ‘W’. Please refer to Grade and Grade Point Average chart. If you repeat a course, only the more recent grade will be used in the calculation of your PGPA; however the original grade(s) will remain on your transcript.
