While it’s not out of the question, you may find it difficult to transfer with a low GPA. When coming into college from high school, they’re looking heavily at your standardized test scores, your ACT and SAT, to assess college readiness. When transferring colleges, they focus much more on your GPA, which tells them how you’ve actually performed at college, that thing they were trying to predict earlier. To explain a lower-than-desired GPA, you’ll want to put a significant amount of effort into your admission essay. If you can muscle through another semester entirely focused on raising your GPA, you may find it easier to transfer.
