  1. I have bad grades in my History class because of technical problems (internet) in my exam. I was only able to complete 4 questions out of 50 which took my grade to F. And Professor said he can’t do anything in this case and it is out of his policy. How can I solve this problem?

  3. Hi my name is Carolyn,

    I am a first year student.
    I was sent a email regarding my GPA and my online classes.
    The email discussed how I may not be able to sign up for online classes next semester.
    I understand my GPA is low however I really believe I can pick my grades up.
    I feel I need time to adjust my school work to my full time job.
    I am starting to get the hang of the new schedule.
    Has anyone been in this position and have any information or tips?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Carolyn,

      We certainly have had students in a similar situation as you. Please call 972-273-3120 or visit our Advising Center in A415 to receive assistance from an advisor.
