Getting into PA school with a low GPA

There are many PA schools across the country and each one has its own requirements. One of the areas where many PA schools have a minimum standard is the GPA. This is a cause for concern among applicants who want to get into PA school with a low GPA. Of course, one of the best ways to overcome a low GPA is to take additional courses and to get good grades in these courses. But if this is not possible, an applicant with a low GPA should not be totally disheartened. There are PA programs with lower or less stringent minimum GPA requirements.

Applicants to PA school should take the time to carefully research PA schools and find out each school’s minimum GPA requirements before applying. This way, individuals with low GPAs can ensure that they do not waste their time applying to a program that has strict minimum GPA requirements higher than their GPA.

If you plan to apply to PA school but your GPA is low, try to find programs which have minimum GPA requirements lower than your GPA. If you find programs that have higher requirements than your GPA to which you are interested in applying, it may be worthwhile finding out whether these programs are lenient on their minimum GPA requirement.

For example, some programs may not have an absolute minimum but a preferred minimum GPA. Other programs may take into account improvements, paying attention to the GPA in more recent academic courses (for example the last 60 credits). Others may consider a graduate or post-baccalaureate GPA if the undergraduate GPA is low.

Another important point to look at is which GPA the school is looking for and how they calculate the GPA.  For example, some programs may require a minimum science GPA but not a minimum overall GPA or vice versa. Try to see how each program goes about calculating the GPA. Many schools use CASPA’s calculation, where all courses including old and new grades in a repeated course are included in the GPA calculation. But you may find some programs that will replace the old grade from a course and calculate the GPA based on the most recent or better grade.

We have done some research on various PA programs in the country to obtain more information on their minimum GPA requirements and GPA averages. We have listed each schools requirements below roughly in order from lowest to highest GPA requirements. Many PA schools have a minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 either in cumulative coursework or science courses. Some have higher minimum requirements while other have requirements that are lower than 3.0. Some programs do not list a minimum GPA requirement. This information is meant to guide you in identifying programs that are a good fit for you especially with a low GPA. For the most up to date and accurate information, we encourage you to visit the school’s website.
