Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

All students must submit either acceptable high school or college transcripts to be considered for full admission into the University. Additionally, if students cannot meet the GPA requirements with their transcripts, but have test scores or a college-GPA that meets admissions requirements, students will be eligible for full admission.
