Colleges for a 3.0 GPA

What colleges will likely accept a 3.0 grade point average?

Is a 3.0 GPA good for getting into college? A 3.0 is equal to the average U.S. high school GPA but still a bit short of the average GPA for college-bound students of approximately 3.15. There are many four-year colleges to choose from where a 3.0 GPA is well within the typical GPA range of accepted students and you will find yourself a competitive applicant.

A high school GPA of 3.0 or B average likely places you in the middle of the academic range at these schools.
