Indiana University is a big place! But, whatever you need, there’s someone to help.
Forms and Policies
The Course Permission Form should only be utilized if you are getting an error message related to a prerequisite, or department permission when trying to enroll in an O'Neill course. Please fill out the form by using the button below.
Did you know that neither O’Neill nor IU can share your academic information with any third party— including your parents—without your consent? The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the confidentiality of educational records. That means that if you would like a third party such as your parents or an interviewer to discuss your academic record with O’Neill, we must have a signed release form on file in the O’Neill Undergraduate Program Office.
This form outlines the process of appealing a grade for O'Neill School students. The petitioner must go through the steps in order for the appeal to be reviewed and considered. Specific information for whom to address the appeal can be obtained by contacting the Undergraduate Programs Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 812-855-0635, or stopping by our office in SPEA 240.
O’NEILL UNDERGRADUATE GRADE APPEAL PROCESS
Any student who believes an O’Neill final course grade is in error, is based on bias, or does not follow the grading policy as outlined in the syllabus, can initiate the grade appeal process. The grade appeal must be submitted within one calendar year from the end of the semester in which the course in question was taken. Here are the steps:
- The student notifies the Director of Undergraduate Academic Affairs (Director) through email that he or she wishes to appeal a grade, and includes the course number, section number and the name of the instructor. The Director then sends an email to the instructor informing him or her that the grade appeal process has been initiated and that the instructor will soon be receiving a request for a meeting by the student.
- The student must then contact the instructor and meet with him or her to discuss the issue. At this meeting, both student and instructor should make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute to the satisfaction of both.
- If the grade dispute does not resolve at this meeting, the student then makes a written appeal to the Director. The appeal is an email to the Director that briefly describes the situation and states why the student believes that the grade is in error, is based on bias, or does not follow the grading policy as outlined in the syllabus. These are the only grounds for appeal. The student also states what relief he or she seeks.
- The Director then meets with the student and the instructor separately to learn more about the situation and understand both sides of the grade dispute.
- After these meetings, the Director may suggest a solution to the parties to see if they find it acceptable.
- The instructor makes a final decision on the grade, sending it by email to the student and the Director.
- The student may appeal the instructor’s final decision by emailing O’Neill’s Executive Associate Dean and requesting an appeal.
- The Executive Associate Dean will inform the Academic Fairness Committee (Committee) of the appeal. The Committee will then contact the student about the appeal and inform the student of next steps.
- The Committee will “consider procedural errors in assigning grades.” BL-ACA-H35. The Committee may “direct the Dean of the School/College to change grades on the basis of the Committee's findings.”
- Each School/College on the Bloomington campus shall create an Academic Fairness Committee.
- Each Academic Fairness Committee shall contain representation of faculty and students.
- The Academic Fairness Committee shall be empowered to consider procedural errors in assigning grades and to direct the
Dean of the School/College to change grades on the basis of the Committee's findings.
Indiana University Bloomington undergraduate students who complete a Withdrawal from All Subjects for two academic terms (fall, spring, or summer) will not be permitted to register for a future term without written permission of the dean of their college/school or the dean’s delegate. These students will have a Negative Service Indicator (hold) placed on their record that prevents future registration by the Office of the Registrar until such permission is obtained.
For O’Neill majors who wish to petition to resume or continue their studies, please submit the Petition to Remove a Hold due to Multiple Term Withdrawal two weeks prior to the start of the semester in which you wish to enroll.
For questions, please contact email@example.com
O’NEILL PETITION FOR LATE COURSE WITHDRAWAL- UNDERGRADUATE
- Petitions for Late Course Withdrawal can only be submitted if you experienced an extraordinary, dire circumstance beyond your control that necessitates withdrawal.
