    D should never be a passing score.

    Really depends on the class. Within my major C is passing D really brings a GPA down so 

    if feeling like that's what you'll get, DROP the course, get an I (incomplete) and take it again.

    Just another reason why it's important to keep track of your progress throughout a semester.

    It depends on the rules of your University and/or program. In my most recent grad program I actually had to get a minimum of a B- for it to count towards my required credits for graduation.

    At my college in the early 70s, a D was passing.  While one would get credit for that particular course, it did not count as far as completing a prerequisite was concerned.  Additionally, since a 2.0 minimum GPA was needed to graduate, one would have to get at least one B for every course with a D.

    At most universities a D is failing, at some universities a C- is failing.   That means you do not get credit for the class and your cumulative gpa drops. 

    I have never heard of a university accepting a D. Every university has their own policies. Some some could very well could accept a D.    

    You can find that Information  out before you apply to any college or university

    It might be passing depending on the policy.

    Most colleges have a minimum GPA you have to maintain in core classes,  often it is  2.0 to  2.50  .A D is a 1.0.  so if it brings down your average to below the minimum GPA you could be put on probation or suspended.

    Typically, you will need to pass with a C- or higher in order to get credit for a class that is a major requirement or part of the core curriculum (i.e. general education requirement). But a D is passing for an elective class.

    YMMV, however, since different universities have different policies.

    I guarantee you're getting the D in college.
