Forms and policies

Academic honesty is expected of all students in all examinations, papers, academic transactions and records. The possible sanctions include, but are not limited to: appropriate grade penalties, loss of registration privileges, disqualification and dismissal. ASU strictly adheres to the academic integrity policy. Students should familiarize themselves with the ASU Student Academic Integrity Policy and the Student Honor Code.

Carrie Robinson serves as the Academic Integrity Officer for the College of Health Solutions and can be reached at Carrie.Robinson@asu.edu.

  • A minimum full-time course load for an undergraduate student in fall or spring semesters is 12 credit hours. The maximum course load for which a student may register in fall or spring semesters is 18 credit hours, with a maximum of nine credit hours in each A or B session.
  • The summer sessions credit load limit is seven semester hours for each six-week session, nine semester hours for the eight-week session, and may not exceed a total of 14 semester hours for any combination of sessions. Requests in excess of seven credit hours per summer session must be approved by the college of your major.
  • A Health Solutions student wishing to register for more than the maximum should contact their academic advisor about the appeal process. For the College of Health Solutions, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and previously have taken class loads of 17 to 18 hours in order to be considered.

An undergraduate course taken by undergraduate students at ASU may be repeated for credit if the grade or mark of “D,” “E,” “W” or “X” is received. To be eligible for the deletion of "D" or "E" grades from calculations of the GPA, the course must be repeated at ASU. Independent learning courses may not be used to repeat "D" or "E" grades. Students who have graduated are not eligible to delete the grade for a course taken before the award of the ASU bachelor's degree. Undergraduate courses in which grades of "D" or "E" are received may be repeated only once. Generally, students may not repeat an undergraduate course for credit when a grade of "C" or higher is earned. Learn more about the repeat policy.

If you need to repeat a course for the third time, an Undergraduate Standards Committee Petition will be required by the College of Health Solutions.

The process of petitioning takes one to two months, depending on how many committees need to review the petition. Please read through the information carefully — petitions that are submitted with errors or insufficient justification will be returned and may delay a decision.

We recommend that you clearly and thoroughly address the following points in your statement on page two of the form and be sure to use proper grammar and spelling:

  • Why are you petitioning to take the course for the third time? (If the class is not required for your degree, the petition will not be supported by the college.)
  • Why were you unable to pass the class on either of the first two attempts?
  • What is your plan to complete this course successfully if allowed to enroll for the third time (tutoring, writing center, changes to your academic or work schedule)?

Petitioning to repeat two classes for the third time in the same semester is not permitted.

The grade of “I” can only be given by an instructor when a student, who is doing otherwise acceptable work, is unable to complete a course (e.g., final exam or term paper) because of illness or other conditions beyond the student’s control. Unfinished work must be completed with the same instructor except under extenuating circumstances. The completion date is determined by the instructor but may not exceed one calendar year from the date the mark of “I” is recorded. Once the work is completed, faculty must request a change on the grade roster to post the grade. If no action is taken by the faculty, the grade will automatically revert to an “E” after one calendar year.

In the College of Health Solutions, once the faculty and the student have filled out the form completely (including signatures, electronic are fine) please forward it to CHSIncomplete@asu.edu.

Incomplete Grade Request Form

The steps outlined in the College of Health Solutions Grade Appeal Procedure must be followed, beginning with step 1, by any student seeking to appeal their final grade in a course offered by the College of Health Solutions. Students seeking to appeal a grade in a course offered by another college at ASU must follow the grade appeal process in that college.

The final grade appeal process may only be initiated by a student once the course has concluded and a final course grade has been posted to the student’s transcript. Per university policy, grade appeals must be processed in the regular semester immediately following the issuance of the final grade in dispute (by commencement for fall or spring) regardless of whether the student is enrolled at the university.

Students at Arizona State University are permitted to pursue concurrent degrees so long as they meet the requirements for both programs and receive permission in advance from the college(s) offering their chosen majors. CHS expects students requesting to add a concurrent major to have completed a minimum of twelve credits towards their first major and nine credits towards the second major, minimum of a 3.0 GPA, and be at sophomore standing or higher. There must be a minimum of 30 unique hours towards each degree program. If a student is adding a concurrent major outside of CHS, a concurrent degree petition must be submitted to the college of the other major.
