  • What kind of grades have I earned so far on assignments? On quizzes? On exams?
  • How many more chances do I have to earn a grade in this particular course?
  • How has my attendance been in this particular course?
  • Might I lose my financial aid eligibility if I drop this class?
  • Is this a pre-requisite or a co-requisite?
  • Will I earn a “W” or a “WF”? (ask your instructor)
