Honours : GPA between 5.5 and 7.4 (70% to 79.4%)  (Only available for 4 year degrees)

Cum Laude honours : GPA between 7.5 and 8.9 (79.5% to 87.4%)

Magna Cum Laude : GPA of 9.0 and above (87.5% and above)

The overall GPA is calculated on a minimum of 45 credits for a three-year degree or 60 credits for a four-year degree. Only credits completed at Laurentian University are considered in the GPA calculation.

## Interpreting the GPA out of 10

The GPA out of 10 stands on its own merit, but sometimes it is useful to convert to a percentage.  Taking the GPA out of 10, multiplying by 5, and adding 42.5 will give a converted value as a percentage.

However, given the nature of the letter grades and their non-linearity with respect to the percentage scale, the conversion at the extremes of the scale (ie, GPA of 0 to 1, or GPA of 10) will not give an accurate representation as a percentage.

## Sending Transcripts to Laurentian University

Applicants to Second-entry (graduate or undergraduate) level university programs, must arrange to have official transcripts sent directly to the Office of Admissions and must be received by the application deadline.

Important: For transcripts to be considered "official", they must be sent directly from the Registrar's Office to our Admissions Office, be imprinted with the school's seal and/or bear the appropriate signature. We will not use opened transcripts sent by the candidates. We do not accept faxed transcripts.
