Return to Academic Regulations

Time Limit for Bachelor's Degree Completion

A student who fails to complete a Bachelor of Science degree within eight years of matriculation will forfeit the automatic right to use the requirements in effect at the time of matriculation. In such cases, the student should contact his or her academic advisor, or the HPER Records Office, HPER 115. The student’s degree program will be re-evaluated, and the student may be required to move to the current program in effect at the time of re-evaluation.

Return to Academic Regulations

Course Load

A student is expected to carry from 12 to 17 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. The maximum number of credit hours to be carried by a student is 19.

Course Load for International Students Monitored by SEVIS

The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) has created the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) to maintain current information on nonimmigrant students, exchange visitors, and their dependents (i.e., all those in the F or J visa status). Students monitored by SEVIS must maintain full-time enrollment (at least 12 credit hours for undergraduates) during fall and spring semesters. For more information about SEVIS, please visit this site: www.indiana.edu/ ~intlserv.

Return to Academic Regulations

Advising

Because the advisor-student relationship is so beneficial to the student’s academic progress and career planning, School of HPER students are required to meet with their assigned School of HPER academic advisors before registering for classes each term. During these meetings, a student and advisor identify the courses in which the student will enroll for the following term. The resulting semester schedule is written on an Academic Advisor Registration Approval Form and signed by the advisor. The student must submit the signed form to the Records Office in HPER 115 to receive clearance to register. Paper copies of the Advisor Registration Approval Form may be picked up in HPER 115, or the form may be downloaded online at www.indiana.edu/~hperwww/academics/forms/index.shtml.
(Additional registration information is available in the Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin.)

Online degree progress reports and printed degree requirement tab sheets are two effective tools used by advisors and students to track academic progress. Degree progress reports (DPRs) are available to admitted Indiana University students at onestart.iu.edu. DPRs allow Indiana University students to view their completed and enrolled course credits in a context that shows completed academic program requirements, as well as those requirements that remain unfinished. In addition, requirements for each degree program are outlined on printed degree requirement tab sheets, 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 advising tools are used by students and their academic advisors to guide the selection of courses and monitor progress. Adhering to stated requirements is the student’s responsibility. The program requirements in this bulletin are listed in the same order as found on the tab sheets.

Return to Academic Regulations

Elective Courses

Elective courses are identified on degree requirement 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 COLL “J” courses, with the exception of COLL-J 113, can be used to satisfy the general-education requirements. Credit earned in courses below the 100 level cannot be applied toward a degree. A maximum of 3 credit hours in EDUC-M 135 Self-Instruction in Art can be counted toward a degree.

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 of Indiana University.

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 115. A final approval or denial decision will be made by the executive associate dean. A copy of the reviewed form with a decision will be sent to the initiating advisor for notification. (Important note: Approved course substitution requests cannot be entered into a student’s degree progress report until the course to be used as a substitute for a required course is on the student’s transcript with a grade that satisfies the original course requirement.) If the substituting course is on the student’s transcript with an appropriate grade the student should monitor the degree progress report to make sure the requested academic exception has been made. If the substituting course is not yet on the student’s transcript with an appropriate grade the student must check with the advisor to find out whether or not the course substitution request is approved.

Return to Academic Regulations

Incompletes

Incompletes The grade of 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 to have an Incomplete removed, it is not necessary to reregister 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

Pass/Fail Option

A student may enroll in one course per semester or combined summer session 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. Students should refer to the Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin regarding Pass/Fail deadlines for a specific semester or 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

Addition of Courses

No course may be added by undergraduate students after the first week of a regular semester or 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 (Withdrawal) 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 Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin. 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

Extended X Policy: Policy and Procedure on Course Reenrollment and Recalculation of Student Grade Point Average

Any undergraduate student may retake a course for which he or she received a grade below A during the first 45 credit hours of course work. Upon completion of the retaken course, the GPA for a student applying this option will be adjusted to exclude the grade for the replaced course. A student may exercise this option for no more than three courses, totaling no more than 10 credits. A student may use this option only once for a given course.

The student must submit an Extended X Request Form before the automatic withdrawal deadline for the term in which the student retakes the course. Students admitted to the School of HPER may obtain, complete, and submit an extended X form in the School of HPER Records Office, HPER 115.

Additional Restrictions:

  1. Students may replace any course taken before, or during, the term in which their forty-fifth credit hour is earned.
  2. All IU course work and any transferred course credits earned at another institution will be included in calculating the "first 45 credit hours."
  3. The following grades cannot be replaced under this policy: S, P, W, I, R, and NC (No Credit).
  4. A student may not replace a grade with a second grade of W, I, R, or NC.
  5. Topics courses are not eligible for replacement under this policy unless the retaken course is identical in content to the replaced course.
  6. A student may not request reversal after asking for and applying the GPA exclusion.
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.

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 before their dismissal.)

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) mayalso result in a student's dismissal from the school. Consult the "Policy on Academic Misconduct" in the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct for information about these policies and procedures. (The policy is reproduced in the Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin.)

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 School of HPER Records Office in HPER 115. 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.

Independent Study

Course work taken online or via correspondence may be accomplished through the Division of Extended Studies, which is part of the School of Continuing Studies. Special permission of the executive associate dean, School of HPER, is required of students registering for independent study course work. A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for a student to enroll in independent study course work. Students applying independent study toward degree requirements must demonstrate consistent progress toward course completion. No more than 6 credit hours of independent study 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 independent study may not be used to meet the HPER residency requirement. CMCL-C 121 Public Speaking may not be taken by independent study.

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 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 January 15 and May 1. Applications and information areavailable online at www.indiana.edu/~hperwww/cost/grant.shtml.

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, ensures 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 online at www.research.indiana.edu/ rschcomp/hmpg.html.

Recommended Electives
Prehealth, professional (medical/dental) students should take at least 5 credit hours of their electives in the College of Arts and Sciences, none of which should be P/F. (The IU School of Medicine requires at least 90 credits of courses from COLL. To meet that requirement, students need at least 5 credits of electives from COLL.) Premed and predental students should also choose courses that will give them a breadth of knowledge. Medical and dental schools look for students who excel in a variety of disciplines. In addition, premed and predental students should look for courses that will expand their knowledge of diversity issues (HPER-H 310 Health Care in Diverse Communities, and courses in Social Work, Sociology, and Criminal Justice). Finally, students may want to use their electives to complete a minor.
