3.25 is average, it's not bad. Why does a student have to have a great GPA to qualify for Pell Grants? Other students can get a lower than average GPA and still get to attend school while poorer students are held to a higher standard to remain in school since sometimes a Pell Grant is all that's keeping the student in school.
Whatever GPA is necessary to keep a "regular" student in school should be the GPA necessary to keep Pell Grants.
