If your school is on a semester schedule, the quarter grades will not be on your final transcript. So, if you get it up in time, the colleges won’t even know you had an F. If you’re on a quarter system, it may be a bit of an issue, so you should calculate your new gpa.

The gpa scale is a 4 for an A, a 3 for a B, a 2 for a C, a 1 for a D, and a 0 for an F. Just average all your grades with your past gpa, and you will figure out the new gpa.
