Some universities that offer conditional enrollment to students who have a grade point average of 2.0 include Golden Gate University, located in San Francisco, California, and National University, located in San Diego, California. Additionally, most community colleges offer open admission that is not contingent on a student's GPA.
Applicants with a 2.0 GPA from at least 12 hours of community college coursework can be admitted into Golden Gate University's Associate of Arts and General Studies program, while students with at least 24 hours of community college coursework have the option of applying for either the Bachelor of Arts in Management or the Bachelor of Science in Business programs.
National University considers applicants with a high school GPA of 2.0 or lower who submit a letter, in addition to their application, to the University's Committee on the Application of Standards. If the committee determines that an applicant with a 2.0 GPA or lower is likely to complete an undergraduate degree, the applicant can be admitted on a probationary basis to many of the school's four-year programs leading to a bachelor's degree. Aspiring college students with low grade-point averages can also improve their academic standings and broaden their options for acceptance into a degree program by attending a community college or online university.
