You can check your grades online at buckeyelink.osu.edu. The registrar does not mail (or e-mail) grades to students.
The grades used by the university and their points per credit
hour are shown in the following chart:
|Grades Numbers of Credit Hours per Class|
Note: Ohio State does not offer the grades of A+ and D-.
You earn no points for an E or an EN, but the hours are
calculated into your grade point average. (An EN grade
indicates that, at some point during the semester, you
stopped attending the class.)
Calculate your GPA.
Other marks are listed below. Note that
points are not awarded for the following marks.
An "I" indicates that a student has completed a major portion of the work in the course in a satisfactory manner, but for reasons judged by the instructor to be legitimate, a portion of the course requirements remains to be completed. If illness or an emergency prevents you from finishing a course, you may request an “Incomplete” from the instructor. When you receive this grade, you must consult with the instructor as soon as possible to make arrangements for completing the course requirements. Incomplete work must be completed no later than the sixth week of the following semester. If the work is not made up by the due date, the “I” mark will be changed to the alternate grade the instructor reported.
- You may take a maximum of 20 credit hours of electives on a pass/non-pass (PA/NP) basis.
- You cannot take general education, major, minor, or prerequisite courses pass/non-pass.
- You must have a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA to use the pass/non-pass option.
- You must complete the pass/non-pass form in the Arts and Sciences Advising office in order to use the option. Please visit registrar.osu.edu and select "Registration, Fees, and Important Dates" for semester, term, and session deadlines for registering for the pass/non-pass option.
Auditing a Course
You may choose to audit a course in order to refresh yourself on the material or to learn more about a subject without earning a letter grade. Fees are assessed for auditing a course, but no credit hours are awarded. You cannot audit a course and then later take the course for a grade. Auditing a course requires the permission of the instructor and the permission of your college office, the latter obtained through your academic advisor.
