What Is Considered A Good Grad School GPA?

The most common GPA needed for grad school is 3.0, though exact grad school GPA expectations can vary a lot by program.

Some schools do set strict cutoff GPAs, which generally range between 2.5 and 3.5, but you may be able to apply (and potentially get accepted!) even with a lower GPA.

Is a 3.7 GPA good for grad school?

On an unweighted GPA scale, a 3.7 GPA means you obtained mostly A’s. The weight this puts on your future depends on your course load. Students taking mostly high-level classes will fare well with a 3.7 GPA. Students with an average course load still look good, but it’s more expected with the less intense classes.

What is the minimum GPA for Masters?

Generally, most master’s programs require minimum GPAs of 3.0 or 3.3, and most doctoral programs require minimum GPAs of 3.3 or 3.5. Usually, this minimum is necessary, but not sufficient, for admission.

Does a 4.0 in grad school matter?

While most grad schools require students to maintain a B-minus or higher, no two programs — or graduate schools, for that matter — are alike. (That said, a smart master’s thesis could speak as loud as a 4.0 G.P.A., since it indicates that a student can identify and complete a doctoral dissertation.)

Can I go to grad school with a 2.0 GPA?

Most of the graduate degrees at Liberty only require a 2.0 GPA while earning your bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. However, there are some programs, such as the Master of Arts in Public Policy, that require a 3.0 GPA for admission, though students with a 2.0 GPA may be accepted on a cautionary basis.
