UNIVERSITY POLICY REGARDING COMPUTING "F" IN THE GRADE POINT AVERAGE:
[W]hen an undergraduate student receives the earned academic grade of "F" or an administrative failing grade, and that student subsequently retakes that course and receives a grade of "C" or better, the initial grade of "F" will no longer be computed into the Grade Point Average. The "F" will remain on the transcript. The number of failing credits that can be deleted from the Grade Point Average shall be limited to 16 for the duration of the student's undergraduate enrollment in institutions of The City University of New York. This policy shall be effective September 1, 1990 at all Colleges of The City University of New York.
