"I want to Forget this semester even happened"
What to do next and what happens when you repeat courses

Trying to forget what happened isn't going to get you anywhere. It is time to take action! You need to access what hindered your progress. Feel free to come in and talk with an Advisor or CSM Counselor. Where possible, make the necessary changes and/or use resources to prevent those same reasons from affecting your future semesters.

Don't forget what you did learn in the less than stellar semester. Why? You will face the material again head on. Repeating a course is the best way to bring up your GPA. The college uses the most current grades in the calculation of the GPA (higher or lower). Keep in mind; it does not erase the grades all together. The previous grades will stay on the transcript in the semester it was earned. On the bright side, the (hopefully higher) grade of the repeated course will show on your transcript and be reflected in your cumulative GPA. This is the fastest way to bring up your GPA.

PS. Don't sell those books back. You're gonna need 'em.
