Is It terrible when you fail a class in college? What are all of the consequences. All I can see right now is money and time. Because Im already terribly behind, and I don't have any money. Im on a big loan. I feel awful, fuck. I failed a easy class. What should I do?

There is an F on the transcript that employers will see.

Well this is a pass or fail class, and I heard if you retake the class, It goes away.

You can retake it, but it fucks up your GPA.

It depends on your school's policy.  Some schools let you retake it and have the new score overwrite the old one, others take an average of the two scores, etc.  Ask the student advisor or consult the course calendar.

It doesn't go away, but the old score won't count towards your GPA.  I failed some easy ass class my freshman year and flipped it to an A that summer.
