Below is the COSC policy regarding department-specific requirements and are applicable only to Summer 2020 UH COSC courses.

COSC Majors and C- or higher course prerequisite requirement:

  • If you receive a grade of "S" in a UH COSC course during Summer 2020, the final letter grade (roster grade) behind the "S" will be used to determine course prerequisite eligiblity.
  • Any grade of "S" where the "roster grade" is below a C- in a UH COSC course during Summer 2020 WILL NOT satisfy the course prerequisite requirement.

Below are the COSC exceptions to any department-specific requirements and are applicable only to Spring 2020 UH COSC courses.

COSC Majors and C- or higher course prerequisite requirement:

  • Students who receive a letter grade lower than the nominal requirement of C- who then opt for an "S" are seriously encouraged to repeat the course to ensure they have the requisite skills and knowledge to be successful in the next course.
