University of Oklahoma Helping Students Manage Pandemic

The University of Oklahoma has announced a number of measures to help students manage the transition of moving classes online amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

OU is planning to drop letter grades and make the online courses pass/no-pass.

The university will also refund dining and housing contracts for students moving off campus, pay some students who will lose their student jobs and give emergency monetary assistance to students who are struggling financially.

Universities across the country have made similar moves in recent weeks as they’ve shifted online to combat the spread of COVID-19.
