Reach out to campus and support resources when you think you are having difficulties with your coursework. Once grades are on your transcript, they are on your transcript forever. 

 
Important to note: Your major may have specific grade or GPA requirements. It is essential that you touch base with a faculty advisor in your academic department about your curriculum and requirements.

For more information regarding grading policies, please visit the registrar.
