Below 1.0 GPA for Broward College

Posted

During my first couple years at BC I was suffering from bad health, all while enrolling in classes-and not attending. I was failed for a total of 56 credits which resulted in a GPA below 1.0. I have since received help and transferred to a community college an hour away and have been holding onto a 4.0 ever since. None of my failed classes transferred in for credit or GPA so I started with a clean slate. I attempted an unsuccessful appeal.

From my understanding broward college calculates GPA just from the prerequisites, right? https://www.broward.edu/academics/health-sciences/nursing/index.html

So do I have a chance at transferring back to BC and entering their program? Or should I stick with my new community college where I have a 4.0(even won a scholarship). The huge con is its an hour away by car and about 1.5-2 hours by bus(which is my main mode of transport right now).

What does the nursing advisor at Broward tell you? Frankly, you will find it easier to deal with the school where you have a 4.0 GPA.

I will basically have to take everything over. Which will put me back 2 years before I even start the prerequisites. I've decided to stay at my current college, the distance is a bit of a struggle but its less of a hassle than trying to go back to BC

This seems like the reasonable decision. Inconvenient as far as distance but it will be worth it when you achieve your goals. Good luck.
