Bad GPA

<p>I got kicked out of a university because I did not meet academic standards.
I recently enrolled in a community college to raise my GPA so I can transfer to another 4 year university.
I have to take 20+ courses and get A's to meet the requirements for the transfer.
Can I take classes that are transferable but not needed for my intended major to raise my GPA?</p>

<p>I have a 1.22 GPA and a 2.8 is required to transfer.
Any advice?</p>

<p>You screwed up. You can't deny that at this point. Simply put, that means you were doing something VERY wrong before. Do you have any plans to actually fix your problematic study habits, or is your plan just "get better grades"? If you were drinking and partying at the university, obviously that has to go. If you tend to get distracted by the computer or your phone or whatnot, then <em>get rid of it</em>. You have to do something drastic to go from an D average to an A average.</p>

<p>yeah im changing my study habits, but do you think its possible for me to do so if i straighten up?</p>

<p>to raise my GPA and get into a 4 year college i mean</p>

<p>Of course it's possible, but it's going to be tough. You have to put in the effort.</p>

<p>Yea, I'm extremely confident that I can do well but I'm just afraid of being rejected after all of that hard work. because 2.8 is the MINIMUM requirement.. thanks a bunch for the replies!</p>

<p>You have to understand now its going to take a significant more time to get your bachelor's, probably 1-3 extra years. </p>

<p>Like the first reply, said you were doing something seriously wrong before. The only real advice I can give is work hard, which is up to you. Cut away all distractions. That means tv, texting, random internet browsing, and yes, probably even your girlfriend if you have one. If your gf cares for your future, she will understand. </p>

<p>Do all your homework, actually study for tests. Pay attention in lectures, use your office hours and get help. Get tutoring. All the resources to help are available, probably for free. </p>

<p>Take a smaller course load at first and then take more classes in later semesters . Take some easier classes too. Also, look at ratemyprofessor dot com and check out teachers before you take their class. </p>

<p>Above all, stay positive. A 2.88 isn't that tough to get.</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice, those are all things I definitely need to do!</p>
