Nothing is stopping you to apply. Some universities admit a lot of international students, especially your home country, so they know how to convert. If not, ask them in advance if it’s necessary to submit translation of transcripts. GPA is on the scale of 4.0. Some countries go with scale of 10. It could be just easy math right there, or they will have to scale your GPA differently.

Although there are a number of websites offering GPA conversion as a paid service, it is still unclear how they do it because the GPA is a weighted average system. As far my understanding allows, you do not need to convert your score to GPA. Here’s why:

When you apply as an international student, the admissions panel will treat as an international student — not a domestic student who has a GPA score. On their file, it will indicate that you have previous education from a “non-American institution”. So, they know. (I have heard that) if they have some previous applicant from the same institution you have graduated from, they will use that person’s transcripts as a reference

Finally, when you go to a university application website and it asks you for GPA (as a mandatory field), in most cases the only reason for that is they haven’t updated their website! Whatever may be the case, if you’re in a situation where it requires you to enter a GPA, you can fill it up with some placeholder/dummy number and then be sure to email the admissions office about the situation. That always worked for me!
