Q
Asked by: Julianna
Question: Hi! I am a first year student and think I am in danger of failing two of my current courses. They are both full year courses, so even if I pass them next semester, will I not get the 6 credit hours from this one? Will I have to take summer courses or re take the first half of these courses again?

Answer: Hi! Since they are both full year courses, you will get a grade for this semester, then another grade for next semester. So if you think that you are in danger of failing them, you still have a chance to do better next semester in order for your final grade to be a passing grade. The final grade is an average of your grades from the two semesters. If you do end up not satisfied with your final grade, then I would recommend that you withdraw from the course in April, so that the grade won't affect your GPA or show up on your transcript. Another option would be to retake those same courses in the summer or even in your second year, so that the grades can be replaced with a new one. Hope this helps and contact your academic advisor if you still have issues with this! :)
