OSU Grading System

Academic Regulations 17–19 describe the OSU grading system. Grades, their associated point values, and the alternative grading system are explained.

GPA Calculation

Academic Regulation 19 describes how GPA’s are calculated at OSU. Each grade is assigned a point value to be used in the student’s GPA calculation. A GPA calculator is available in this website and in MyDegrees.

Incomplete Grades

As stated in Academic Regulation 17, if circumstances exist which are acceptable to the instructor and the rest of the student's academic work is passing, an incomplete grade may be assigned and additional time granted for completion of course work. At the time the incomplete is submitted, an alternate grade representing the grade the student would receive in the course if no further course work is completed, will also be submitted. If the incomplete is not removed within the one year deadline, the alternate grade will become the grade of record.

Do not enroll again in a course for which you have received an incomplete grade.
