Is a 1.7 GPA Good?

A 1.7 GPA is well under the national average of a 3.0 GPA. A 1.7 GPA is low by comparison. However, it won’t take much to tip your GPA over the 2.0 mark.

For high school students

A 1.7 won’t look good when applying to universities. You’ll need to raise it at least a point or so to be considered for admission.

For college students

Most graduate programs won’t consider applications with a GPA under 2.5. Your GPA shows your readiness for a more rigorous level of study, and a 1.7 GPA doesn’t inspire much confidence in that regard.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

It’s better to think of raising your GPA in small increments, rather than big jumps. Simple consistency is the key to salvaging your GPA.

  • Prioritize your studies, scaling back on extracurricular activities to focus on raising your GPA.

  • Request extra work and feedback from your instructor.

  • Complete assignments and study for tests well in advance.
