Is a 1.8 GPA Good?

A 1.8 GPA sits far below the national average of a 3.0 GPA. A 1.8 GPA is generally considered very low, but, with just a little work, you can bump it up over the 2.0 mark.

For high school students

Anything below a 2.0 GPA is not even considered by college and university admissions offices. Such a low GPA reflects that you aren’t ready to take on the rigorous requirements of a college course load.

For college students

A high GPA is crucial to being admitted into a graduate program. Most programs require a GPA of 2.5 or above to even apply, let alone stand a chance of being accepted.
