HPER GradPact Program

Those students who are, upon entrance to Indiana University Bloomington, able to determine their university major and who need to graduate as quickly as possible, may wish to consider the School of HPER GradPact Program. The HPER GradPact Program guarantees that the student with a HPER major will graduate within 128 graduation credits if those courses listed on the degree tab sheet are successfully completed.

Part I. Student Responsibility: Responsibility for academic success within the HPER GradPact Program is ultimately the student's.

Timely completion of requirements. Students must begin study in their major early enough so that they can arrange their courses of study and begin progress toward their degree in a timely manner. This means that students (1) should begin the completion of course requirements for admission to their School of HPER major in the first semester of their first year, (2) must complete all and only the course and competency requirements set forth in the HPER GradPact contract, (3) may change majors within the School of HPER at any time if the change does not impede their eligibility to graduate with no more than a total of 128 graduation credits, and (4) may not apply HPER GradPact toward minors. (Courses taken outside this contract that make students' total completed credit hours more than 128 graduation credits render them ineligible for continuing on this graduation assurance program.)

Consistent Progress: Students must make consistent progress toward their degree. This means that students (1) must have completed all campus procedures for signing on and remaining eligible for HPER GradPact prior to their admission to a School of HPER major, (2) must complete all School of HPER stipulated procedures for remaining eligible for the HPER GradPact program once admitted to a School of HPER major, (3) must, after certifying into a HPER major, meet with their HPER-assigned advisor during the preregistration advising period each semester enrolled (students in HPER majors not using HPER-assigned advisors will not be eligible for HPER GradPact), (4) are responsible for tracking their own progress, and (5) with the following credits may not count them in the 128 graduation credit total for the HPER GradPact eligibility: remedial course credits (such as MATH M014), transfer credits from another college or university that do not count toward the degree requirements, and courses for which grades lower than the degree program accepts were earned (such as earning a D in a nutrition core course where a minimum grade of C- is required for nutrition science majors.)

Part II. School Responsibility: The development and implementation of a quality educational plan for entrance into careers in health, kinesiology, and recreation is the responsibility of the faculty of the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation.

Guarantees: The School of HPER guarantees students adequate opportunities for the completion of the degrees within 128 graduation credits.

  1. School of Adjudication Office staff supervise HPER GradPact student records and work closely with department academic advisors.
  2. Academic departments make courses available in a reasonable and timely manner.
  3. Academic departments plan curriculum requirements that qualify graduates for careers within their major and may be accomplished with 128 graduation credits. Students in majors requiring more than 128 graduation credits (because of accrediting body standards and licensure requirements) have adjusted graduation assurance plans.
  4. Academic departments make periodic reviews of the curricula to assure currency of the majors offered.
  5. Academic departments prepare curriculum materials that are comprehensible to students and that are reliable (that is, not changed on an ad hoc basis).
  6. All students with a HPER major are assigned an official HPER academic advisor.
  7. The School of HPER Records Office staff maintain the IUCARE system for those students with School of HPER majors.

Application for a Second Undergraduate HPER Degree

A student who is interested in pursuing a second undergraduate degree in the School of HPER must complete the following steps:

  1. Meet with a HPER undergraduate advisor in the department where the second degree is to be pursued in order to discuss the appropriateness of the second undergraduate degree and to review alternative ways to achieve your academic and career goals (e.g., a minor, a certificate program, or a graduate program in the academic area).
  2. Take at least two courses in the academic area of the additional degree before officially making application to the second undergraduate program.
  3. Complete the application for a second undergraduate degree (HPER 115). If the entrance requirements for the major have been met, the Records Office will notify the applicant in an official admission letter.
Return to Admissions

Second Undergraduate HPER Degree Regulations

  1. The student must meet the school residence requirement, which states that 30 out of the last 60 credit hours must be completed at the Bloomington campus and two of the last four semesters of work must be completed at the Bloomington campus after admission to the School of HPER.
  2. The second degree must be in a different department than the first degree.
  3. A student pursuing a second undergraduate degree may not enroll in graduate course work unless enrolled in the last semester for both undergraduate majors.
  4. If the first degree is from another college or university, the applicant must apply to Indiana University through the Office of Admissions.

Return to Academic Regulations

Course Load

A student is expected to carry from 12 to 16 credit hours of academic work a semester. Permission to carry fewer than 12 credits may be obtained only in special cases from the dean of the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation. A student who has an average of at least 3 credit points for each hour taken in the semester immediately preceding may receive permission from the dean to carry more than 18 credit hours. The maximum number of credit hours to be carried by a student is 19.

Return to Academic Regulations

Advising

Because the advisor-student relationship is so beneficial to the student's academic progress, HPER students are required to meet regularly with their advisors for ongoing assistance in academic and career planning.

Return to Academic Regulations

Program Requirements/Tab Sheets

In the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, the requirements for each degree program are outlined on a tab sheet, available in HPER 115. The tab sheet for each academic program specifies such requirements as total credit hours needed for completion of the degree, courses to be taken, GPA requirements, suggested electives, and other information. These tab sheets are used by students and their academic advisors to guide the selection of courses and monitor progress. Adhering to the requirements specified on the tab sheet is the student's responsibility. The program requirements in this bulletin are listed in the same order as found on the tab sheets.

Tab sheets are used in conjunction with a Registration Approval Form. Students meet with academic advisors to identify the courses in which they will enroll, and then submit the completed registration approval form to the Records Office in HPER 115 to receive the registration ticket. (Additional registration information is available in the Schedule of Classes.)

Return to Academic Regulations

Elective Courses

Elective courses are identified on the tab sheets. All programs provide elective courses to allow flexibility in the student's academic preparation. Students should consult with their academic advisors before choosing elective courses.

There are two types of elective courses: specialized electives, chosen from a prescribed list, and free electives, chosen from the entire list of university offerings. Free electives allow students to enroll in any course, except as indicated below in "Restrictions." These free elective credit hours may count toward the total credit hours required for the degree and may be taken under the Pass/Fail option. Students may wish to take free electives for personal enrichment.

Return to Academic Regulations

Restrictions

No EDUC "F"courses and no COAS "J" courses, with the exception of COAS J113, may be used to satisfy the general-education requirements. Credit earned in courses below the 100 level may not be applied toward a degree. A maximum of 3 credit hours in EDUC M135 Self-Instruction in Art may be counted toward a degree.

Return to Academic Regulations

Incompletes

The grade I is given only under circumstances beyond the student's control that prohibit completion of the course on time, and when the work of the course is substantially completed and of passing quality. When an Incomplete is assigned, a record must be maintained in the office of the department in which the grade was given. The record will include a statement of the reason for recording the Incomplete and adequate guidance for its removal, with a suggested final grade in the event of the departure or extended absence of the instructor from the campus. To receive notification of a removal of Incomplete, contact the instructor. A student must remove the Incomplete within one calendar year from the date of its recording. The dean, however, authorizes adjustment of this period in exceptional circumstances. If the student fails to remove the Incomplete within the time allowed, the dean will authorize the Office of the Registrar to change the grade to F. Both the student and the instructor will be notified of this change in grade.

If an instructor requests that the student retake the course in order to have an Incomplete removed, it is not necessary to re-register for the course. Once a student has graduated, an Incomplete may remain on the official record.

In research and reading courses, the work of the course is not necessarily required at the end of the semester. If work is incomplete, an R (deferred) grade may be assigned.

Return to Academic Regulations

Residence

A minimum of 30 of the last 60 credit hours of university work must be completed in residence on the Bloomington campus.

Return to Academic Regulations

Pass/Fail Option

A student may enroll in one course per semester under the Pass/Fail option. Only free electives may be taken Pass/Fail, unless otherwise stipulated by the specific degree requirements. It is the responsibility of the student to check the major or emphasis area to determine specific restrictions.

Decisions to take courses Pass/Fail must be processed with the Office of the Dean in the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation no later than the end of the third week of the semester or by the fifth day of the summer session. A grade of P is not counted in computing grade point averages, but a grade of F is counted. A grade of P may not be changed to any other letter grade.

Return to Academic Regulations

Requirement Exceptions

Under extraordinary circumstances, a degree requirement exception, such as a course substitution or waiver, may be made for an admitted HPER student. The student's HPER academic advisor must initiate a requirement exception request by completing and signing a Course Substitution Request Form. The advisor or the student must then deliver the form to the Records Office, HPER Room 115. Ultimate responsibility for delivery of the form to HPER Room 115 rests with the student. A final approval or denial decision will be made by the associate dean for academic program administration. A copy of the reviewed form with a decision will be sent to the initiating advisor for notification. The student should check with his or her advisor two to three weeks after submission about the outcome of the request.

Return to Academic Regulations

Addition of Courses

No course may be added by undergraduate students after the first two weeks of a regular session or one week in a summer session unless the instructor of the course approves a petition that an exception be made and the request is approved by the chair of the department in which the course is offered and the dean of the school in which the student is enrolled.

Return to Academic Regulations

Withdrawals from Courses

A grade of W (Withdrawn) is given automatically when a withdrawal occurs during a specific span of time after the final schedule adjustment period at the beginning of a regular semester or summer session. For the dates of this period consult the Schedule of Classes. Withdrawals that would reduce a student's enrollment below 12 credit hours or interrupt progress toward satisfaction of specific area requirements will not be authorized.

Petitions for withdrawal after the periods specified above will not be authorized by the dean of a student's school except for urgent reasons related to extended illness or equivalent distress. The desire to avoid a low grade is not an acceptable reason for withdrawal from a course.

If the student withdraws with the dean's consent, the mark in the courses shall be W if the student is passing at the time of withdrawal and F if the student is not passing. The grade will be recorded on the date of withdrawal. Failure to complete a course without authorized withdrawal will result in a grade of F.

Return to Academic Regulations

Absences

Confirmed illness is usually the only acceptable excuse for absence from class. A student who misses a final examination and who has a passing grade up to that time is given a temporary grade of Incomplete if the instructor has reason to believe the absence was beyond the student's control. The Office of the Dean of Students reviews excuses for absences from final examinations and notifies instructors of its decisions.

Return to Academic Regulations

Academic Standing

Candidate for Bachelor's Degree in Good Standing
Students are considered to be candidates in good standing for an Indiana University bachelor's degree when they have been officially admitted by the Office of Admissions, when their minimum academic grade point average is 2.0 (C) for the last semester's work, and when their cumulative grade point average is at least 2.0 (C). Consult other sections in this bulletin on the specific program of study for additional degree standards.

Class Standing
Class standing is based on the number of credit hours completed:
Freshman:
Sophomore:
Junior:
Senior:
fewer than 26 cr.
26 to 55 cr.
56 to 85 cr.
86 or more cr.

Return to Academic Regulations

Academic Probation

Students are placed on academic probation for the semester following the one in which they failed to earn a C average. Students remain on probation as long as they fall below a C average in a given semester or if their cumulative grade point average drops below 2.0 (C).

Return to Academic Regulations

Dismissal

Students will be dismissed from the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation when, in the judgment of the Scholarship and Probation Committee, they have ceased to make academic progress toward their degree. Students who fail to attain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in any two semesters and who have a cumulative grade point average below 2.0 will be dismissed automatically. (Note that these students will have been placed on probation prior to their dismissal.)

Students with two consecutive semester grade point averages below 2.0 will be carefully evaluated with the possibility of dismissal at the discretion of the Scholarship and Probation Committee.

In special cases a student who has been dismissed may petition the committee for readmission within 10 days of receiving a dismissal notification.

Academic misconduct (cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, interference, violation of course rules, or facilitating academic dishonesty) may also result in a student's dismissal from the school. Consult the "Policy on Academic Misconduct" in the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct (the policy is reproduced in the Schedule of Classes) for information about these policies and procedures.

Return to Academic Regulations

Readmission

The School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation is not obligated to readmit students who have been dismissed. Students who have been dismissed from the school for academic reasons are normally considered for reinstatement only after at least one regular (fall or spring) semester. To be considered for reinstatement, a student must submit a reinstatement application form, available from the Office of the Associate Dean of the school. Requests for readmission cannot be considered if the university has placed the records on hold for any reason, such as for outstanding fees. In considering a request for readmission, the committee will need to be convinced that the student now has sufficient aptitude to pursue the intended program of study. Students must also show signs of increasing maturity, increasing commitment to their education, and adequate financial resources without excessive employment.

In granting readmission, the committee may require special conditions, such as a 12 credit hour maximum enrollment per semester; regular tutoring sessions; participation in relevant professional organizations; or registration in writing, reading, and/or study skills courses.

Return to Academic Regulations

Degree Application

A candidate for graduation must file a formal application with the school six months before the expected date of graduation. The school will not be responsible for the graduation of seniors who fail to meet this requirement.

Return to Academic Regulations

Correspondence Study

Course work taken via correspondence may be accomplished through the Division of Extended Studies, which is part of the School of Continuing Studies. Special permission of the associate dean for academic program administration, School of HPER, is required of students registering for correspondence course work. A minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average is required for a student to enroll in correspondence course work. Students applying correspondence study toward degree requirements must demonstrate consistent progress toward course completion. No more than 6 credit hours of correspondence courses may be active at a time. A maximum of 30 credit hours of such courses may be counted toward a HPER degree. Courses taken by correspondence may not be used to meet the HPER residency requirement. CMCL C121 Public Speaking may not be taken by correspondence.

Undergraduate Student Research and Travel Grant-In-Aid

Student research and publication support is viewed by the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation faculty as an essential component in an academic environment that encourages undergraduate and graduate students to become actively engaged in research-related activities. The program of financial support for undergraduate student research in the school is intended to provide support for inquiry (Student Research Grant-In-Aid) and the dissemination of research results (Student Travel Grant-In-Aid). Two competitions are held annually with deadlines of November 1 and March 1. Applications and information are available in HPER 115.

Return to Academic Regulations

Undergraduate Student Research and Human Subjects

Indiana University requires that all research using human subjects be approved before the research begins. This satisfies a number of federal, state, and institutional regulations, and more importantly, assures protection of the rights and welfare of persons used in research. Every research proposal submitted by a student and/or a faculty member must contain documentation that clearance has been obtained for the use of human subjects. A faculty member must sponsor this research. Forms and procedures for this purpose are available in HPER 115.
