  • Review the class syllabus to figure out what your final grade could be.
  • Meet with your instructor to learn what you can do to improve your grade.
  • Manage your time to focus on the classes, assignments, and exams that will help your progress the most. Ask your instructors and advisor for help setting priorities.
  • Talk to your instructor about the possibility of an incomplete.
