Is a 2.7 GPA Good?

A 2.7 GPA is noticeably lower than a 3.0 GPA, which is the national average. It’s almost decent, but still a little low. Luckily, a 2.7 is certainly a GPA that can be pulled up to a solid number.

For high school students

If your GPA is a 2.7, you stand little chance of being admitted to most four-year universities. If you have a good ACT score, you might consider starting off at a community college, then transferring into a four-year university.

For college students

A 2.7 is sufficient to apply to most graduate programs, but your chances of being admitted are still small. If you have developed a portfolio of proficient work through certain courses or internships, you might consider entering the workforce.
