I know it sounds bad like how could you do that. I went back to school 5 weeks after I had my baby only taking one class ,but apparently being a stay home mom and work part-time I just couldn't do school anymore even though it's just one class.I'm thinking about retaking the same class next semester still only one class , so what would my GPA look like if I get an A(easy A class online class I was just too busy to even check it and missed too many due dates)

    If your school does academic renewal, then your A will replace the F and your GPA would be 4.0.

    I would like to add (in addition to Gumbymom being correct) is that most schools only offer academic renewal one time during your time spent at that college. So chose your usage of that single opportunity wisely - if you think you may have a D or F that needs to be renewed from this past summer school or something, take your timing into consideration. Another thing to note, is that the UC's honor and recognize academic renewal. In other words, they will only consider your renewed GPA which is great for all of us out there have have had a blunder or two along the way.
