If I fail a class, is it best to take it over the summer at a community college?
No. Courses taken elsewhere and completed with at least a “C” grade will transfer as course credit but will not replace the grade earned in the earlier attempt at NCCU. Students may repeat up to five courses in which they have earned a “D” or “F” at NCCU; only the higher grade will be calculated in the GPA but all repeats are still counted in attempted hours. After five repeats, ALL grades will be calculated in the GPA.
