Grade Point Average (GPA) is a summary of what you score in your courses. It shows how high or low your grades are, or if you are merely an average student.
The typical college student is no longer the 18- to 24-year-olds that finished high school and immediately went on to college. Today’s college students are a diverse lot and include military veterans, stay-at-home mothers, business folk, and others.
Few students register for college with the intent to fail or drop out. Unfortunately, by the end of your freshman year, one in three of your first-year classmates will quit according to US News and World Reports.
