Is a 2.6 GPA Good?

A 2.6 GPA is below the national average GPA of 3.0. A 2.6 GPA is considered below average, but with a little work, you could boost it into a respectable range.

For high school students

Top tier schools usually demand a 3.5 average to even apply. Even for less rigorous admissions offices, a 2.6 is on the low end of what they would consider, if they would consider it at all.

For college students

A 2.6 GPA is sufficient to apply to graduate programs, but is rarely good enough to be accepted into one. You might consider taking extra classes to raise your GPA or consider going directly into the workforce after college.

How Can I Raise My GPA?

Raising your GPA is all about patience. Commit yourself to turning assignments in on time and completed to the best of your ability, and in general making your studies a high priority.

  • Study every day. We know, easier said then done, but keep at it and you'll be rewarded.

  • If you don’t understand an assignment or a concept, ask someone in the class who is performing well to help you.

  • Prepare for tests well in advance of the test date.
