Undergraduate 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.

All faculty, staff and students may report an academic integrity violation online. Ron Hicks serves as the Academic Integrity Officer for the College of Health Solutions and can be reached at ron.hicks@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.

Late registration

Students who request to enroll in a course after the university add deadline should be aware that this exception to university policy is not guaranteed to be approved. To register for a class after the add deadline, students are required to obtain authorization from the instructor and the college. The course in question must have open seats, and the student must meet the prerequisites.

Students who wish to request late registration for a College of Health Solutions course must follow the steps below in the order in which they are listed:

  • 1. Fill out an enrollment change request form
  • 2. Obtain the instructor's signature by having them sign the form, or have the instructor send an email confirming their approval to add the course late.
    • Late add requests are only considered with instructor approval during the following time frames:
      • First week of A and B session courses (end of the 5th business day from the first day of the session)
      • Second week of C session courses (end of the 10th business day from the first day of the session)
      • Any late add requests beyond these time frames are not considered.
    • Many classes and labs have attendance policies. Confirm with the instructor whether adding the class late means that the missed days count toward total absences.
    • Students should ask the instructor if they are allowed to make up any work they missed by adding this class late.
  • 3. Obtain authorization from the College of Health Solutions:
    • Send the signed form and approval, including all pertinent attachments, to the advising office via email:
    • or obtain authorization in person at the following locations:
  • 4. Submit the approved form to the University Registrar Services office:
    • Once the advising office has provided authorization, submit the form to any Registrar location for processing.

For questions, students can call the College of Health Solutions at 602-496-3300 or toll free 844-857-3348.

The College of Health Solutions may approve a late add, late drop or late withdrawal for a CHS course that is due to extenuating or extraordinary circumstances beyond the student's control. The student must outline extenuating circumstances in an email statement and attach the enrollment change request form along with a written statement or email of support from the instructor of the course. These requests should be sent to CHS@asu.edu.

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.

Contact your advisor

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.

If you are considering adding a concurrent major, we highly encourage you to speak with your academic advisor to understand ultimate goals and review your graduation timeline.
