Should I retake this class?

BurndtJambBurndtJamb 9 replies4 threads New Member
Long story short, I took a heavy load last spring and failed an online communications class. I talked to a counselor about the F, and she told me that it was up to me on whether or not I wanted to retake it. The class counts towards elective credit, so it's not very important.

I plan on applying to SDSU and CSULB this fall, but I'm afraid that they'll reject me because of one F. I don't want to retake it because I already have a busy schedule and the school is only offering an online version of the class this fall.

Note: I failed COMM. 105 - Media Studies, not COMM. 101

CURRENT GPA 3.4

Should I retake the class? :(( Will I be rejected if I don't? help!

    Both SDSU and CSULB are very competitive for transfer students, especially if you are not in the local service area so it will definitely impact your chances.

    Is this Communication class part of the Golden 4 needed for transfer? If so, you definitely need to retake but if not, I would still retake since the F vs a retake grade of B or higher will make a huge difference on your chances of getting an acceptance.

    You should probably re-take the class but, I'd call or visit SDSU and ask.
