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. The available grades and their associated point values are explained. Here you can also learn about the alternative grading system and the rules associated with these systems.
As stated in Academic Regulation 21 each term a list is published containing the names of students that completed at least 12 graded credits hours with a 3.5 or higher GPA. OSU News and Research Communications sends the Honor Roll to newspapers each term. Term-by-term honor rolls are posted here.
First-year students at Corvallis Campus (Cascades Campus and Ecampus students are excluded) that encounter academic difficulty during their first year at Oregon State University will be provided additional guidance from Academic Advisors in their respective college. This guidance is to help students transition to the requirements of the Oregon State University academic standards. Students in Academic Warning or Academic Probation within their first year will receive a registration hold placed on their account. The hold can be removed after meeting with an advisor in their respective college and developing a personalized plan for improving their academic success.
Students are expected to maintain the 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).
