The average GPA was around 2.4. – Bonus points: During the lectures, the students as a team will be randomly chosen to answer short questions in front of the class. The questions will be posted in advance. Bonus points will be given to the entire team if the questions are answered correctly. Bonus points will help your letter grade if you are at the borderline of the cutoff threshold.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
