Grade point policy
Occupational Safety and Health minors must achieve minimum course grades of 2.0 in all required OSH courses. A final course grade below 2.0 places a student on probation, which requires a meeting with the program director or a designated representative to discuss a method of remediation. In most cases, the method of remediation involves repeating the course in which the unsatisfactory grade was earned. See repeating courses for additional information.
