Academic Success (Undergraduate)

Please take some time to review our tips for academic success and to review the End of Term Policy for Autumn 2020: 

Effective-Autumn semester 2020 only:

Due to the implementation of a number of adjustments for autumn 2020 to offer additional academic flexibility for students, the HRS End of Term policy has been modified.   HRS will continue to review the student’s academic record and prior interactions with university faculty, staff and other academic units to determine the appropriate academic action.   Additionally, the review will take into consideration trends regarding academic success and difficulty and course marks including graded, PANP and S/U taken during Spring 2020 and Autumn 2020.

Specific details regarding each University/Program Academic Action Outcome

Academic Action

Academic Warning and Probation – action will be based solely on cumulative OSU GPA;

Special Action Probation- action will be applied for students who received NP for two or more courses;

University Academic Dismissal-action will be based solely on courses that affect cumulative OSU GPA; There is no particular OSU cumulative GPA that warrants this action.  This action is more likely for students who present with a pattern of academic difficultly for extended periods.  Finally, this action determined by the HRS Director of Academic Affairs, will be made on a case-by-case basis, given serious thought and are not made without prior academic action.

Program Probation-unchanged – action will be based solely on cumulative OSU GPA;

Program Dismissal-unchanged – action will be based solely on cumulative OSU GPA.  NP marks may not result in these actions unless there is a trend.  This action is more likely for students who present with a pattern of academic difficultly for extended periods and have received program probation in the past.

Student Notification

Unchanged-Academic warning, probation, university academic dismissal, program probation and program dismissal.

Letter of Concern-Students receiving one mark of NP will receive letter of concern from the Director of the School.   If more than one course receives a mark of NP, a student may be placed on Special Action Probation.
