Modification to Grading Policy

Requests for the S/U grade option ended at 5 p.m., Monday, May 10, and no further requests will be honored.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Oakland University recognizes the need to create a temporary modification to the grading policy for Winter 2021 semester.

Students enrolled in undergraduate courses will be permitted to convert any undergraduate course to satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) grading for the Winter 2021 semester. All courses for which students receive satisfactory (S) or unsatisfactory (U) grades will not be used for calculation of grade point averages. Because each course’s learning experience is different, there is no limit on the number of courses that students can convert to S/U grading. Decisions can be made on a course-by-course basis.

Any failing grades (F) received in Winter 2021 courses will automatically be converted to the unsatisfactory (U) grade. Therefore, students who receive a failing grade (F) should not submit a request form to convert the grade.

Students should be aware that although S/U grading is an option for all courses, it may not be the best choice for everyone. Academic advisers are ready to work with students to determine the best course of action for individual situations. Please read through the FAQs to better assist you in making an informed decision.
