Grade Change Policy
For the situation where a student believes there was an error in the calculation or assigning of a course grade, it is the responsibility of the student to contact the course instructor to discuss the grade and make his or her case to have the grade changed. If the course instructor declines to support the student's request for a change of grade or in situations where the instructor cannot be contacted, the student may appeal the course grade following the procedures established by awarding academic unit.
Requests for change of grade after the conclusion of a course will be honored only to correct a mistake or error in calculating or assigning the course grade. To facilitate this process, the Office of the Registrar shall maintain a Change of Grade Petition document. The Change of Grade Petition shall require course information, a provision for the student to make a personal statement explaining why she or he believes the grade should be changed and a provision to include supporting documentation.
This Administrative Withdrawal Policy is effective for all students enrolled in undergraduate level courses that are at least 6 weeks in duration. Students who miss more than 50% of an undergraduate course meetings and/or required activities during the first 25% of the course duration may be administratively withdrawn from that course unless documentation of contact with their course instructor, academic unit or academic advisor is provided. Students enrolled in Undergraduate courses may be administratively withdrawn regardless of their class standing.
Requests for withdrawal after the twelfth week (after the fourth week in a summer session) require the signature of the instructor, advisor and the student's dean. These late requests are considered only in extraordinary situations which are beyond the student's control and rarely are granted. Poor performance in a course is not considered grounds for a late withdrawal. No withdrawal forms will be processed in the Office of the Registrar after the last day of classes for the term/session. Any requests for a late withdrawal after the last day of classes must go through the grade appeal process.

Principles of learning
Academic Affairs Committee recommends that the IUPUI Faculty Council adopt the following descriptions of the Principles of Undergraduate Learning. These descriptions include brief definitions and the general ways in which the principles can be demonstrated.
The Principles of Undergraduate Learning are the essential ingredients of the undergraduate educational experience at IUPUI. These principles form a conceptual framework for all students’ general education but necessarily permeate the curriculum in the major field of study as well. More specific expectations for IUPUI’s graduates are determined by the faculty in a student’s major field of study. Together, these expectations speak to what graduates of IUPUI will know and what they will be able to do upon completion of their degree.
Before taking any action, faculty are expected to be informed of the disciplinary procedures to resolve allegations of academic misconduct.
The Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct and the IUPUI Academic Misconduct Procedures can be found here: http://studentaffairs.iupui.edu/student-rights/student-code/faculty-staff-info.shtml.
When a faculty member has either discovered or been given information indicating that a student has committed an act of academic misconduct related to a course, the faculty member of record must initiate efforts to determine if academic misconduct did really occur. Within 5 business days (excluding University recognized holidays and breaks; henceforth, referred to as 5 business days) of the discovery or receiving the information of possible academic misconduct, the faculty member must schedule a meeting with the student. During that meeting the faculty member must:
- Advise the student of the alleged act of misconduct and the information upon which the allegation is based.
- Provide an opportunity for the student to respond to the allegation.
- Complete an Academic Misconduct Reporting Form, which can be found at the bottom of this page: http://studentaffairs.iupui.edu/student-rights/student-code/faculty-staff-info.shtml
Accessing educational records and FERPA
All faculty are required to complete the FERPA tutorial every two years.
Educational records are maintained by various Indiana University offices.
A federal law, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (also known as FERPA or the Buckley Amendment), affords students certain rights concerning their education records. These rights include:
- Access to Education Records
- Amendment to Education Records
- Prior Consent before Disclosure of Education Records
- Annual Notification of these rights
All school officials are required to understand their responsibilities and to prevent improper disclosure of personally identifiable information from student education records.
