Can I request the Pass/Fail grade for a course I am repeating? If yes, what grade will be used for my GPA?

Yes, you may request the Pass/Fail grade when repeating a course. Please know that, for undergraduate courses, the Pass grade has the same value as a D grade, although it will not be calculated in your GPA. Therefore, any grade higher than a D will be counted in your GPA, instead of the Pass grade, for repeated courses.

For example, if you failed a course the first time and then earned a Pass grade in the repeat, the F grade is excluded from your GPA. If you earned a C grade the first time and then earned a Pass grade in the repeat, the C grade stays in your GPA.

See the table below for how using the Pass/Fail grade for a repeated course will affect your GPA.
