For full-time students in good standing, taking no more than 50 percent of courses online: If you have no more than two absences in each class, turn in all homework and assignments, visit with each of your instructors and your advisor outside of class, and use our free tutoring at least three times for each of your classes, Missouri State University-West Plains guarantees you may be allowed (one time only) to retake the class(es) in which you received a 'D' or 'F' tuition free the next regular semester in which the course is offered – if you earn a term GPA less than 2.0. (Does not apply to Nursing and Respiratory Care degrees due to selective admissions criteria.)
