This answer will vary depending on the circumstances.  It is best to check with your campus VA representative for details.  Questions the VA campus rep will consider include if you need to raise your GPA to get to a 2.0 for graduation.  Also if repeating the course is counted in your full-time load or if it is in addition to your full-time load.

I received an F in a course. Will the VA pay for me to retake it?

Yes, the VA will pay to retake a course once.  If you are unsuccessful twice, the VA generally will not pay for a third repeat.
