Checking Your Grades

As a student at New York University, your class grades and grade point average make up a large part of your academic record and are determined according to university grading policies.

You can check your midterm and final grades on NYU Albert each term you’re enrolled after your instructor submits them to our office.

To view your midterm and final grades:

  • Go to the Grades and Transcripts section in NYU Albert
  • Generate an unofficial transcript to see your grades and your cumulative GPA

Official transcripts must be requested from the Office of the Registrar.

Grade Point Average

Your grade point average or GPA is a weighted average that measures scholastic achievement on a scale from 4.000, an A, to 0.000, an F.

Your GPA is created by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of credit hours earned.

Your GPA contains three decimal points rather than one because of a University Senate resolution issued in March 2018.

The new system resolves inconsistencies between quality points and grade point averages, since the latter are represented on your NYU transcript using three decimal points.

Please note: A specific grade may not be valid in a particular school or division.

Grading Policies

All final grades are due to the Office of the Registrar 72 hours after the scheduled final exam date.

If you receive an incomplete (I) grade in a course, it will lapse to a failing (F) grade based on the lapsing rule of the school you took the course through. 

Blank Grades

You may receive a blank grade if your instructor or authorized school administrator does not enter your course grade within 60 days from the grade due deadline. If this happens you will see a No Record or NR on your transcript.

NR grades can be changed by instructors or authorized administrators using the standard grade change process in NYU Albert at a later date.

If you receive an NR grade:

  • Your course will not count toward earned credit or factor into your GPA.
  • Your course will count as credits attempted and impact academic progress evaluations used for financial aid eligibility.
  • You cannot graduate with an NR grade on your record without a formal documented exception approved by the academic Dean.

Repeated Courses

Repeated courses are also reflected on your transcript according to the rules of your home school:
