Question about retaking a course.

<p>Hi everyone,</p>

<p>Currently I'm a junior and I'm afraid that in this past semester I got a D in my United States History course. The problem is my teacher doesn't post our final grades online, and I'm not sure when report cards are being sent out. Since I won't find out my final grade in time to late sign up for our district summer school, would it still be possible for me to make up the D in the beginning of the school year at a junior college or will that not work because I am taking the class at the same time that I'm applying to college? I'm applying to mostly CSUs, and I know that they don't accept Ds or Fs in required courses.</p>

<p>Thank you for any help. :)</p>

<p>Why don't you sign up for summer school preemptively and drop the summer class if you get higher than a D?</p>
