I have a question for those more knowledgeable. My question is this…is it better for a student to withdraw or to take an F? I have a specific situation in mind but any information would be good to have.
One of my students is passing three out of four classes. If the student withdraws from the class he/she is failing their UPASS will be cut off. I did the math and calculated it would cost a person over $60 bucks to ride CTA for the last weeks of school. Even broken down to $5+ a day that can still be a lot of money for some of our students. My student could not afford that amount and so was going to take an F in one class while passing three other classes. So, what happens to a student’s financial aid when they fail one class (or receives a D) but pass their other classes?
