Academic Warning: A student whose IU semester GPA falls below a 2.0, but whose IU cumulative GPA is a 2.0 or higher will receive a letter from the Director of Student Success regarding the academic warning status.
Academic Probation: A student whose IU cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 will be placed on probation and academic hold will be placed on a student's record. The student may continue studies provided the student achieves an IU GPA of at least 2.0 for each semester while on probation. Once the IU cumulative GPA is at least 2.0, the student will be removed from probationary status. A student will be advised of probationary status by letter from the Director of Student Success. All students on probation will be required to meet with the Director of Student Success. The academic hold could be released from a student's academic record following the meeting with the Director of Student, pending that there are no additional academic steps that need to be followed before the hold can be released.
A student on probation who has completed a minimum of 12 IUPUI GPA hours is subject to dismissal if the student fails to attain an IU semester GPA of at least 2.0 in two consecutive IUPUI semesters (Fall and Spring), including the semester that the student was first placed on probation and when the student's IU cumulative GPA is below a 2.0.
A student can also be dismissed from the university when the student has ceased making progress in the degree program.
Reinstatement: A dismissed student who wishes to be reinstated must complete the Reinstatement Application by the following deadlines:
- June 15 for fall semester
- October 15 for spring semester
- March 15 for summer session
The Reinstatement Application requires explanation of any extenuating circumstances that may have hindered academic performance and a brief outline of future schedules and study plans. Each application will be considered on an individual basis and will receive more favorable consideration if the student has sought advice about academic progress on previous occasions and if academic records are close to the standards required for retaining the student.
The School of Physical Education and Tourism Management typically does not consider petitions for immediate reinstatement. Dismissed students who believe that circumstances warrant consideration for immediate reinstatement must meet with the Director of Student Success, who will determine whether or not an application for immediate reinstatement is warranted.
One Dismissal: Students who have been dismissed once for academic reasons may appeal for reinstatement subject to the conditions stated above.
Two Dismissals: Students who have been dismissed twice for academic reasons may not appeal for reinstatement for any enrollment period during the next calendar year.
Students who are reinstated by the school will have to meet prescribed standards of performance for the semester for which they are reinstated. Failure to meet these standards will result in dismissal.
Residency Requirements for Graduation: Students must complete at least 30 hours of the last 60 credit hours required for a specific degree program while in residence at the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management at IUPUI. The 30 credit hours should include either one 12 credit hour regular semester or two 6 credit hour summer sessions.
Degree Application: A candidate for graduation must submit a Graduation Application by the following deadlines: October 1 for May graduates, February 1 for August graduates, and May 1 for December graduates. The school will not be responsiblefor delays in graduation due to students failing to meet the deadline requirement.
Graduation with Honors: Indiana University recognizes the top 10% of the graduating class with the highest cumulative grade point averages by awarding degrees with the designations “Distinction,” “High Distinction,” and “Highest Distinction.” The designated individuals are presented with honor cords to wear at Commencement exercises for IUPUI.
