Kate Lehman serves as the academic integrity officer for the College of Health Solutions. She can be reached at email@example.com.
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.
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.
Student grade appeals must be processed in the regular semester immediately following the issuance of the grade in dispute (by commencement for fall or spring), regardless of whether the student is enrolled at the university.
The process begins with a discussion about the matter between the student and the course instructor. If the matter remains unresolved, instructors will forward the case to the Academic Program Lead (APL) and degree coordinator in their area for further review.
Students who wish to file a grievance about a non-grade-related matter may use the form below and follow the linked procedure. Non-grade-related grievances may include dissatisfaction with an instructor, problems with a classmate or other unresolved situations.
