Hello everyone,
almania

My admission to MLIS was denied because of low GPA 2.65, now I am taking classes to raise the GPA. My question is that Is there a way to know how many credit units I need to take in order to increase my GPA to 3?
Xandria
50:08
HI Almania, I am a prospective student in the same situation and you you can simply go here to calculate it http://www.back2college.com/raisegpa.htm

It depends on how many units you have already
