WHAT IF this summer I decided to take a course and ended up failing it, and because of that my GPA dropped to just below a 3.0. Can I retake it in the fall and DEFINITELY pass it and bring my GPA above the 3.0 requirement.

Theoretically, Could I do that ?? since the class wasn't funded by SMART ?

I have no experience to confirm this, but as I understand it, SMART only considers your GPA during funding and only cares about failed classes that are taken during funding. So I think you would be okay if this happened.

So assuming you're starting your funding period this fall you should be fine! Just make sure you get your GPA about a 3.0 in the fall when they are paying.

NVM failing course would not drop me to below 3.0.

yay! That's good. I hope you don't end up failing, but if you do you'll get a really good grade when you retake it :)

Also, just to note, after you do start SMART and the GPA matters. A lot of schools will let you delete a limited number of failing grades from your transcript. As long as that deleted grade doesn't drop you below the full-time student line for that semester, it would be a good emergency maneuver.
