Is a 1.9 GPA Good?
A 1.9 GPA is over a point under the national average 3.0 GPA. As such, it is quite a low GPA. Your first step to a respectable GPA will be raising your GPA over a 2.0.
For high school students
Top tier schools require a GPA between 3.5 and 4.0 to be considered for admission. Even lower-level institutions will hesitate to accept a student with a 1.9 GPA.
For college students
A 1.9 GPA is too low to be considered by graduate programs. If you have a solid portfolio of work that demonstrates your proficiency in your field, you may find it easier to enter the workforce.
How Can I Raise My GPA?
Admissions offices look at your GPA as an indicator that you are a hard worker and that your studies are important to you. Your GPA can reflect these attributes if you make your studies a priority and study hard.
Use your time wisely. Don’t wait until a test is looming to get a good grasp of the material.
Show your interest and initiative by participating fully in class.
Ask your professor or instructor for suggestions or extra work.
