The OX grade is appropriate for students who miss a final exam or coursework during the last two weeks of the semester on account of extenuating medical or personal issues, and who have been progressing satisfactorily in the class.
Students should discuss this option with their professor and a dean in Student Support Services.
If the OX is appropriate, the professor will issue an O grade indicating there is missing work, and the dean in S^3 will issue the X allowing the opportunity for the student to complete the missed work.
When the work is completed and a final grade is determined, that grade will replace the OX on the transcript. An O must be converted into an OX before a grade can be assigned. An O without an X counts as an F the GPA
If the student does not complete a subject with an OX, the OX will remain on the record and will not impact GPA. A student can graduate with an unfinished OX on their transcript as long as it is not a degree requirement.
