Appealing a Disqualification
Graduate students would need to contact the Associate Dean of Graduate School and complete the Graduate Student Appeals Process.
If you have questions regarding your individual course grades, you should contact the instructor to discuss the matter. All grade changes must originate with the instructor and pass through college department for approval. They are finally routed to the records office in Lucina Hall where they are processed on the same day they are received.
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 by sending an email to email@example.com, so that we may figure your grade point average (GPA) and take the action that the new grade will create.
All emails will be verified against the individual(s) listed as course instructor(s) of the class.
If you are appealing a grade, see the Grade Appeal Policy.
Appeal of Academic Disqualification
If you had extenuating circumstances such as medical, family health or deaths, or other unusual events that led to unsatisfactory grades for the term, you should write an appeal letter explaining your circumstances within two weeks of the day that the faculty submits the final grade to the Registrar. If you are unable to come to campus, please fax your letter and
documentation complete with your e-mail and phone number where you may
be reached during office hours. Fax 765-285-8765. Please allow up to 48
hours to process your appeal.
- Resolve all holds first.
- 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 an advisor or faculty
member, or resource center logs.
- The letter should be legible and documentation should support statements made in the appeal letter. After you have compiled your appeal information, you should return it to the registrar's office for review and decision.
- If you wish to appeal the decision, please call the office at 765-285-1722 to make an appointment.
- Bring your appeal letter and further documentation to your appeal meeting.
If You are Granted an Appeal
Appeals from academic disqualification place the student on academic probation for the next term of enrollment.
The student record is assessed at the conclusion of the each term of enrollment.
Probation means that you are still required to meet university standards.
All students who have fewer than 30 credits earned must receive at least a 2.0 for the next semester (2.1 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 Division of Student Affairs to have a successful term.
