What Grade Point Average do I need to have in order to transfer?

At most schools the minimum GPA is 2.0, however, specific majors may have higher requirements. As the number of applicants to a school increases, so do the GPA requirements. It is best to keep your GPA high in order to be competitive for acceptance at the school of your choice.
