Is a 1.5 GPA Good?

The national average is a 3.0 GPA, so a 1.5 GPA is well below average. A 1.5 GPA makes you seem unready to advance to an institution of higher learning. If you still have a few semesters to go, a respectable GPA is within reach, if you’re willing to work hard for it.

For high school students

With a 1.5 GPA, you are unlikely to meet the requirements to even apply to a college or university. Even if you have an impressive resume of extracurricular activities, a 1.5 GPA implies you don’t take your studies seriously.

For college students

A 1.5 GPA will bar you from being admitted into a graduate program. Your GPA may not matter as much if you are entering the job market and have a portfolio of work that speaks to your proficiency in your field.
