Hi does anyone know what gpa parsons expects from their students before application? And is it different for bba and bfa? Meaning, do they expect a higher gpa if you apply for their business (bba) program than the arts (bfa) program?
Thank you

I don’t think they have a specific GPA they’re looking for but I think good grades matter and if your GPA isn’t too high, I would say to make your portfolio exceptional. I got in with a 4.0 UW GPA but I don’t think my Portfolio was that strong but my GPA was and my essays. So either one or the other should be strong.

Hi thank you so much for your response. If I may ask, did you apply for the bfa or bba program?
Thank you @aamlam

@esra99 I applied for the BFA!! I think the only thing that’s different in the application is the BBA doesn’t require a portfolio and the BFA does. But both require the Parsons Challenge.
