The GPA needed for graduate school will be strictly dependent on

the receiving institution. Each college or university may have

their own required GPA. Please be advised, that each program within

the institution may alsohave their own minimum GPAfor you tobe

considered as a bona fide candidate. In other words, a graduate

program within a universityin Liberal Arts may require a minimum

undergraduate GPA of 2.0. However, if applying to their Masters in

Business Administration (MBA) program,theminimum undergraduateGPA

may be a 3.5.You must check with each of the graduate programs for

this kind of detail. Please be advised, that the undergraduate GPA

is usually only one area they look at. Depending on the program,

they may require testing which may include the Graduate Record Exam

(GRE)as anexample. They maylook for indicators such as withdrawal

from courses, courses that were repeated, how many credits you

handled per semester. Also extra curricular activities, letters of

recommendation, and personal essay. Consider all of the abovein an

effort tomake yourself as marketable as possible.
