F Grade Policy and Repeating D Grades

CUNY Baccalaureate follows the University policy on “F” grades:  effective fall 1990, students may re-take up to 16 credits of “F” (or FIN, WU) earned in courses taken in CUNY after September 1984. The course (same number and title) must be repeated at the college where it was originally taken. The student must earn a “C” or better in the repeated course to have only the second grade count in the index, although both courses will continue to appear on the transcript. CUNY Baccalaureate is not a party to variations on the University policy approved for individual campuses. Also, while some colleges allow D grades to be repeated, CUNY BA does not.
