PTCAS calculates a standardized set of GPAs to help programs evaluate applicants using uniform criteria. PTCAS GPAs may differ from those calculated on your transcripts due to the grade standardization process. Programs may use the PTCAS GPAs or calculate their own.
Allow 4–5 weeks for PTCAS to calculate your GPAs once your file is complete. PTCAS will email you once your coursework is verified and GPAs are calculated. Login to your application to view your GPAs. If you have questions about your GPAs, contact PTCAS customer support.
PTCAS will assign the following grades to courses with numeric grading scales, regardless of the letter grade value assigned on the official transcript. Enter your course grade exactly as it appears on your transcript.
You may review your PTCAS GPA by logging into your account on the PTCAS website. Your PTCAS GPA will be calculated within 4–5 weeks after PTCAS receives your submitted application, all transcripts, and the correct fee payment. PTCAS will send you an automated email once your GPAs are online. PTCAS GPAs are likely to be different from those calculated by the institutions you attended due to the PTCAS grade standardization process. Please contact PTCAS by email with questions.
