Interim Grading Policy Guide How to Select Your Grade Option for Spring and Summer 2020

The University of Houston has adopted an interim grading policy for the spring and summer terms in order to support students who transitioned from in-person to online course delivery due to COVID-19. Learn how to select your grade option for spring and summer 2020 by selecting the most relevant group below.

You will now see three grade columns listed in your myUH account. The first is your "roster grade," which is circled in red below. This is the letter grade assigned by your instructor. The second is the "converted grade," which is circled in yellow below. This is the grade that automatically generates (based on your roster grade) because of the interim grading policy. The third is your “grade,” which is circled in teal below and will appear on your transcript. If you choose to change your grade (by submitting an Undergraduate Interim Grading Form), the changed grade will generate in this column only.

Here’s how it'll work:

  • If the grade your instructor assigns you (roster grade) is between an A and C+, the grade will be the same in the grade column.
  • If the grade your instructor assigns you (roster grade), is between a C and D-, the grade automatically converts to S in the converted grade and grade columns.
  • If the grade your instructor assigns you (roster grade) is an F, the grade automatically converts to NCR in the converted grade and grade columns.
  • If your desired grade is in the Grade column, you do not have to submit a form.

Even though the above will happen automatically, you are able to request for your grade to be changed to your roster grade or for your roster grade to be changed to S or NCR. Watch our step-by-step video or follow these steps:

  1.  Go to the “Student Center” in your myUH account
  2.  Click on your To-Do List
  3.  Click on “Details and Upload Documentation”
  4.  Click on “UGRD Interim Grade Policy Req”
  5.  Click on “Undergraduate Interim Grading Form”
  6.  Fill out the form
  7.  Upload your completed form*
