What HBCUs accept a 3.0 GPA?

Hey folks, I'm currently a junior with a 3.0 GPA and I'm super interested in attending an HBCU. Can anyone share which HBCUs have accepted students with similar GPAs? I'm trying to gauge my chances and would love some insight from you all.

Hey there! First off, kudos to you for looking ahead and setting your sights on college. Many HBCUs are quite welcoming to students with a range of GPAs, and a 3.0 definitely does not close doors for you. Don't forget to highlight your extracurriculars, community service, and any leadership roles you've held as these can all significantly strengthen your application. Check each school's website or contact their admissions office for the most accurate info on their recent admitted classes' stats. Some schools may even list the average GPA of their admitted students, which can give you a good idea of where you stand. Best of luck with your search and future applications!
