Modification to Grading Policy

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Oakland University recognizes the need to create a temporary modification to the grading policy for the fall 2020 and winter 2021 semesters.

Students enrolled in undergraduate courses will be permitted to convert any undergraduate course to satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) grading for the fall 2020 and winter 2021 semesters only. 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 fall 2020 and winter 2021 courses will automatically be converted to the unsatisfactory (U) grade. 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.

To better assist you in making an informed decision, please read through the FAQs.

SUBMISSION PROCESS:

Between December 19 at 8 a.m. through January 11, at 5 p.m., students can begin submitting their requests for the S/U grading option. The form will be posted here on December 19. These requests occur after all final grades have been posted on December 18. 

Once the grade has been changed to an S/U, the grade cannot be changed back to the original grade and no requests after that date will be honored.
