Is a 3.3 GPA Good?
A 3.3 GPA is noticeably above the national average—which is a 3.0 GPA. It’s considered a solid GPA and demonstrates a good work ethic and intelligence. Still, your GPA would be even more impressive with just a few tweaks.
For high school students
Colleges and universities will be pleased to see a 3.3 GPA on your application, especially if your application shows a healthy participation in extracurricular activities. If you have a high standardized test score, you may even be eligible for scholarships.
For college students
Graduate programs require at least a 2.5 GPA to apply, so a 3.3 is more than sufficient to apply for these programs. If you’ve completed outside work or internships, you will be an even more enticing applicant.
