Colleges for a 2.4 GPA

What colleges will likely accept a 2.4 grade point average?

Is a 2.4 good?

A 2.4 is well below the U.S. average high school GPA of 3.0 and pretty far short of the average 3.15 GPA for college-bound students. High school freshman and sophomores still have time to pull their GPA up from a 2.4 to a 3.0 which is much better for applying to colleges. Juniors and seniors face more limited options. If you graduate high school with a 2.4, you have very few traditional selective four-year college choices. You will find more options if you also consider colleges that have open admissions to all students regardless of GPA.

What is a 2.4 GPA?

A 2.4 is equal to a 79% on the standard U.S. high school unweighted 4.0 scale. The letter grade equivalent of a 2.4 is a C+ average.
