Instructors may consider attendance in the calculation of students’ grades. Refer to Academic Regulation 14 for more details.
Academic Regulations 17–19 describe the OSU grading system—available grades and associated point values, and the alternative grading system.
As stated in Academic Regulation 21, each term an honor roll list is published with the names of students who completed at least 12 graded credits with a GPA of 3.5 GPA or higher.
Students are expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress standards set out in Academic Regulation 22. There are four possible academic standing statuses.
The Faculty Senate Committee on Academic Standing is charged with the responsibility for enforcement of the above regulations on Satisfactory Academic Standing. Additionally, this committee has discretionary authority to grant exceptions and to develop guidelines for the administration of these regulations.
1 An attempt comprises a final grade in a course where the grade is: A, A–, B+, B, B–, C+, C, C–, D+, D, D–, F, S, U, P, NP, I/Alternate Grade (where the Alternate Grade is one of these grades), W, or Y.
Students may petition once with the Registrar to exclude OSU courses from the calculation of institutional requirements, credits, and grade-point average, under the conditions defined in Academic Regulation 31 (Academic Fresh Start Policy).
