Internship with Columbus Police

The Columbus Division of Police is seeking students in physical therapy, exercise physiology, athletic training, or a related field for an unpaid internship with the Columbus Police Training Academy.

In this internship, the intern will observe recruit physical training and make recommendations for any changes, as well as support recruits in preparation for taking the state physical fitness test. Ideally the intern will be available from about September 2022 to March 2023 to complete this cycle for one recruit class.

Interested students can submit a personal cover letter and recommendation letter from a professor or academic advisor to Iris Velasco at IVelasco@columbuspolice.org.

Due to the nature of working in a law enforcement agency, the application process also includes a background review, personal history statement, and polygraph. Please forward this email to others who may be interested, and thank you very much.

HRS Approved Emergency Grading Policy for Spring 2021

HRS Approved Emergency Grading Policy for Spring 2021

HRS Undergraduate Students

  1. The new policy is automatic as opposed to opt-in, so students do not have to request the new grade scheme for their courses. Please note the expanded PA/NP grading option that was available SP20 and AU20 will NOT be continued for SP21. For more information, visit https://oaa.osu.edu/grading-spring-2021.
  2. Under the new university emergency grading policy, courses will be graded as they are normally; that is, instructors will assign the earned grade in the course, A-E. Before final posting to academic records, the Registrar will convert all D+ and D grades to PE (emergency pass), all E grades to NP (no pass), and all EN grades to NEN (no pass, non-attendance).  While PE, NP and NEN marks will not be calculated into the GPA, all grades A through C- remain as those specific grades and will calculate into the GPA.
  3. Dean’s list rules remain the same: students must be registered for at least 12 credits with at least 9 regular credits, graded. A grade of NP, NEN or U disqualifies a student from the Dean’s list even if GPA is at or greater than 3.5.
  4. PE, NP, and NEN grades do not count towards the credit hours needed for Latin Honors at graduation.
  5. The PE grade is equivalent to D+ or D, which means courses graded PE will NOT count in HRS majors or minors (Athletic Training, Health Information Management and Systems, Health Sciences, Medical Dietetics, Medical Laboratory Science, Radiologic Sciences and Therapy and Respiratory Therapy; HRS undergraduate minor (Integrative Approaches to Health and Wellness, Aging, and Medical Laboratory Science) or HRS certificate (Assistive and Rehabilitation Technology) courses offered in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences). In addition, a PE grade in a prerequisite or pre-major course that requires a minimum grade of C- (or higher) will mean the requirement is NOT fulfilled and the course will have to be repeated, just as it would if the posted grade was D+ or D.
  6. Repeat of a course initially taken during Emergency Pass grading does not count towards the students’ limit of three Grade Forgiveness attempts.
  7. If the student would like to request a letter grade in place of an E, NP and NEN, this must be requested to the Registrar for the transcript correction. Please note that a process for requesting a conversion has not been established. This process will be communicated to students when available.

HRS Graduate Students

  1. The new policy is automatic as opposed to opt-in, so students do not have to request the new grade scheme for their courses.
  2. Under the new university emergency grading policy, courses will be graded as they are normally; that is, instructors will assign the earned grade in the course, A-E. Before final posting to academic records, the Registrar will convert all C+, C, C-, D+ and D grades to PE (emergency pass), all E grades to NP (no pass), and all EN grades to NEN (no pass, non- attendance).  Although the mark is not calculated in the GPA, students assigned a PE will receive academic credit for the course.  All grades A through B- remain as those specific grades and calculate into the GPA.
  3. Due to accreditation requirements and professional competency, in the clinical graduate programs: Doctorate in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy Doctorate, Master Dietetics and Nutrition, and Master Respiratory Therapy, students must request to the Registrar a letter grade on their transcript for any grade less than B-. Please note that a process for requesting a conversion has not been established.  This process will be communicated to     students when
  4. For students enrolled in the PhD and MS in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, the emergency grading policy will apply as approved by the university in Spring, 2021. These students are not required to request a letter grade on their transcripts for any grade less than a B-.
