Relay's minimum undergraduate GPA requirement is a 3.0. Applicants with an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 may be eligible to enroll by supplying an additional letter of recommendation and, in some cases, enrolling as a non-matriculated student. When you enter your undergraduate GPA on your application, the system will automatically guide you on your next step.
- Extra Recommendation Letter: Applicants with an undergraduate GPA below 3.00 are required to provide an additional letter of recommendation.
- Non-Matriculated Status: Applicants with an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.50, but below 2.75 (2.80 for Philadelphia), may be eligible for non-matriculated status. Please visit our Support Center article to learn more.
We are unfortunately unable to make exceptions to the 2.50 undergraduate GPA minimum requirement. For example, if an applicant’s undergraduate GPA is below a 2.5, we are unable to average the undergraduate and graduate GPAs to arrive at a higher GPA. In addition, we are unable to adjust a GPA based on courses that did not count towards the undergraduate degree.
