salam alaikum brother,
Obviousely, from what I mentionned above about the GPA, you should be able to calculate your GPA, and if it's less than B or 3/4, then you either try to raise your GPA by taking extra classes in any university in USA ( by registring yourslef as a NON-Matriculated student, to take pre-requisite classes and try your best to have better grades in those classes, and as a result, your overall new GPA will go high ( this you can do it only if you are already in USA), as it might be a bit difficult to get a student visa based on that ( because you wouldn't have full admission as a full time-Matriculated student by then, but you will be registered as a NON-Matriculated student or ( NON Degree seeking student). Another alternative, there are few universities, which in case your GPA is lower than 3 or B for the 5 years, they will ONLY consider the last 60 credits earned, in other words, they will ONLY look at the last 2 years of your degree ( Remember: the last 60 credits), you can find that in this link : <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.sfu.ca/students/calendar/2015/summer/fees-and-regulations/grad-regulation.html">http://www.sfu.ca/students/calendar/201 ... ation.html</a><!-- m -->
Quoted from the above lik: 1.3.3 Admission to a Master’s Program
The minimum University requirements for admission to a master’s program are as follows.
a) a bachelor's degree from Simon Fraser University or its equivalent from a recognized institution;
b) a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0/4.33 (B), or a grade point average of at least 3.33/4.33 (B+) based on the last 60 credits of undergraduate courses. All graduate work is also considered. Individual graduate programs may set a higher admission grade point average;
c) submitted evidence, usually references from qualified referees, of the student’s ability to undertake advanced work in the area of interest. In addition, some programs also require completion of entrance examinations such as the GMAT and GRE, and/or the submission of other material.
In exceptional circumstances, a student may be admitted with lower formal qualifications than in (a) or (b) when there is significant professional experience relevant to the proposed area of scholarship.
