Information on Academic Appeals for Disqualified Students
If you have questions regarding your individual course grades, you should contact the instructor to discuss your grade. Grade changes come from the instructor to college departments and then finally to the Records Office in Lucina. This takes a while to process.
If you discuss a grade with your instructor and if a grade change is coming for your record, have the instructor notify and confirm the change immediately with Julia Dotson, Asst. Registrar so that we may figure your GPA and take the action that the new grade will create. 765-285-1725.
If you are appealing a grade see the information on Students Rights and Community Standards
or call 765-285-5036.
If you had extenuating circumstances such as: medical, family health or deaths, other extenuating circumstances that lead to unsatisfactory grades for the term you should write an appeal letter
explaining your circumstances within 2 weeks of the day your grades are on the system.
You should include supporting documentation with your appeal letter. Emergency room and doctor receipts or letters, obituaries, and other pertinent letters such as support letters on letterhead from advisor or faculty, or resource center logs.

If You are Granted an Appeal
You should be aware that you are on Probation unless your grade changes take your accumulative average above 2.000.
Probation means you are still required to meet university standards.
All students fewer than 30 credits earned must receive a 2.000 for the next semester.
Or 2.100 for all students who have earned 30 or more credits.
You should use all the resources available to you such as Learning Center, Advising, Counseling Center, and Dean of Student's Office to have a successful term.
