Want to raise your GPA? Here's how to do so without retaking classes. You can renew up to 12 units of substandard coursework (D's or F's) or 1 semester of substandard coursework (below 2.0 GPA). Conditions: One year has elapsed since the most recent courses to be renewed, you've completed at least 15 units with a 2.0 or higher GPA at a regionally accredited college since the courses to be renewed, and official transcripts from all colleges are on file. See a counselor for the petition.
According to Jennifer Atkins of UCSD, a course taken at a UC college for a substandard grade should only be retaken at a UC campus. This can be through cross enrollment or summer session, but not through Extension. If you receive a grade of "F" in a UC course and retake it at a non UC campus, both grades will be averaged. If you get a grade of "D" in a UC course and retake it at a non UC college, the repeated grade will be disregarded. Students who are not in good standing at a UC aren't eligible to attend another UC, but an exception can be requested. This info was forwarded by counselor Rudy Zamora.
