The following academic handbook content is general information that all students, undergraduate, master's and doctoral, will find useful during their time at Fairbanks. Information for students at both our Indianapolis and Fort Wayne campus locations is included.
Specific information related to degree programs can be found below.
Students in the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health are expected to conduct themselves as professionals and avoid acts of plagiarism, cheating, or other forms of academic dishonesty.
Faculty in the School of Public Health take their responsibilities seriously and do not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, or any other form of academic misconduct. All students should read about their responsibilities for academic integrity in the IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct to ensure that they understand what these terms mean and what penalties can be issued for academic misconduct.
The IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct defines four areas of academic misconduct: cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and interference. Violation of course rules and facilitating academic dishonesty are also outlined in the Code. The prohibited activities and actions include the following:
Cheating - Cheating is defined to be an attempt to use or provide unauthorized assistance, materials, information, or study aids in any form and in any academic exercise or environment.
A student must not use external assistance on an in-class or take-home exam, unless specifically authorized by the instructor. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, the use of tutors, books, notes, calculators, computers, and wireless communication devices.
Use another person to take an exam or quiz for himself/herself
Use another person to conduct research or to prepare work, without advance authorization from the instructor who has assigned the work. This prohibition includes using materials prepared by a commercial term paper company, files of papers prepared by someone else, and documents found on the Internet. A student must not collaborate with other persons on a particular project and submit a copy of a written report that is represented explicitly or implicitly as the student’s individual work.
Use any unauthorized assistance in a laboratory, at a computer terminal, or on fieldwork
Steal exams or other course materials, including but not limited to, physical copies and photographic or electronic images
Submit substantial portions of the same academic work for credit or honors more than once without permission of the instructor or program to whom the work is being submitted
Alter a grade or score in any way, nor alter answers on a returned exam or assignment for credit
Fabrication - A student must not falsify or invent any information or data in academic work; this prohibition includes, but is not limited to, records or reports, laboratory results, and citation to the sources of information.
Plagiarism - Defined as presenting someone else’s work, including the work of other students, as one’s own. A student must not adopt or reproduce ideas, opinions, theories, formulas, graphics, pictures, or statements of another person without acknowledgment. Acknowledgement must be given for:
Quoting directly another person’s actual words, whether oral or written;
Using another person’s ideas, opinions, or theories;
Paraphrasing another person’s words, ideas, opinions, or theories, whether oral or written;
Borrowing facts, statistics, or illustrative material; or
Assembling or collecting materials by others in the form of projects or collections
Interference - A student must not:
Steal, change, destroy, or impede another student’s work; or
Give or offer a bribe, promise favors, or make threats with the intention of affecting a grade or the evaluation of any student’s academic performance
Violation of course rules - A student must not violate the course rules established by a department or contained in a course syllabus or in other course-related information, including verbal instructions provided to the student.
Facilitating academic dishonesty - A student must not intentionally or knowingly help or attempt to help another student to commit an act of academic misconduct nor allow another student to use his or her work or resources to commit an act of misconduct.
School of Public Health policy on academic misconduct
"Honesty requires that any ideas or materials taken from another source for either written or oral use must be fully acknowledged. Offering the work of someone else as one's own is plagiarism.
The language or ideas thus taken from another may range from isolated formulas, sentences, or paragraphs to entire articles copied from books, periodicals, speeches, or the writings of other students. The offering of materials assembled or collected by others in the form of projects or collections without acknowledgment also is considered plagiarism. Any student who fails to give credit for ideas or materials taken from another source is guilty of plagiarism."
Faculty Council, May 2, 1961;
University Faculty Council, March 11, 1975;
Board of Trustees, July 11, 1975
As outlined in the IUPUI Code of Students Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct, “the procedure for imposing academic and disciplinary sanctions are designed to provide students with due process and procedural fairness, to ensure equal protection for all students, and to provide for the imposition of similar sanctions for similar acts of misconduct.
At the same time, the procedures reflect the need to be concerned about the individual student involved in a particular case. The procedures therefore provide that the imposition of disciplinary sanctions must also be based upon a consideration of all circumstances in a particular case, including a student's prior record of misconduct, if any.”
If a student is found to have participated in an act of academic misconduct, it will be dealt with immediately. The following steps will be followed.
Step 1: The instructor will notify the student in writing (via email or hard copy) of the offense and penalty. Penalties can include, but are not limited to, the following:
Lower grade for the assignment in which the infraction occurred
Failing grade for the assignment in which the infraction occurred
Failing grade for the course
Recommendation for suspension or dismissal from the school.
Step 2: The student will be invited to meet with the instructor to discuss the situation in person (or via Zoom, if necessary) as soon as possible. A third party (faculty or staff member) from the Fairbanks School of Public Health will be in attendance at this meeting. The student will have an opportunity to share their comments and respond to the allegation. If the instructor concludes that the student did commit an act of academic misconduct, the instructor will complete the Academic Misconduct Reporting Form, with signatures, and submit a copy to the student, and the department chair. A copy will be retained in the student's academic file if the student is enrolled in the School of Public Health.
If the instructor concludes that the student did not commit an act of academic misconduct, the form is not completed.
Step 3: The outcome of the meeting will be documented in writing via email within five business days with copies sent to the student and the department chair. Acts of misconduct that warrant a recommendation for suspension or dismissal from the school will go before the Academic Progress Review Committee for deliberation and decision. If the student disagrees with the decision of the instructor or the Academic Progress Review Committee, the student has the right to appeal the decision by department chair following the procedures and time period outlined in the IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct.
If the student has repeatedly exhibited academic misconduct, or in cases of flagrant violations of academic misconduct where suspension or dismissal are being considered, the instructor will provide evidence to the department chair, who will take the issue to the Academic Progress Review Committee (APRC) for a decision. The decision of the APRC will be forwarded to the department chair and dean. If the APRC’s decision is suspension or dismissal, notification of the suspension or dismissal will be sent to the student from the dean.
If a student disagrees with the faculty member’s accusation or sanction for academic misconduct, the student should first attempt to resolve the issue by discussing his or her concerns with the faculty member who issued the sanction. If the matter is not resolved to the student’s satisfaction after meeting with the faculty member, the student may appeal or dispute the action taken through the appeals process outlined below.
A written request for an appeal meeting before the Academic Appeals Committee must be submitted to the department chair, within five business days after receiving a copy of the Academic Misconduct Reporting Form from the faculty member.
The Appeals Committee will convene to hear the student’s appeal.
This Appeals Committee is the final decision-making body for academic misconduct appeals within the School of Public Health unless a documentable procedural error occurred during the appeals process, in which case a final appeal may be made following the procedures outlined in the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct. If it is determined by the Appeals Committee that academic misconduct did not occur, documentation of the accusation and sanction will be expunged from the student's file.
The appeals process outlined above does not apply in situations where a student disagrees with a letter grade in a course based on quality of work. The final decision regarding letter grades based on quality of work rests with the course instructor. This appeals process can only be used for letter grade appeals if there is a procedural or policy violation. In addition, the appeals process outlined above does not apply in situations where a student disagrees with his or her placement on academic probation due to grades earned.
Students are required to notify FSPH Student Success of their pending graduation by completing the Application for Graduation Form found in the student portal of the Fairbanks School of Public Health website. The Division of Student Success will notify students of graduation application deadlines via email.
Spring (May) graduation – October 15 deadline
Summer (August) graduation – January 15 deadline
Fall (December) graduation – May 15 deadline
Spring (May) graduation – February 15 deadline
Summer (August) graduation – February 15 deadline
Fall (December) graduation – September 15 deadline
It is important that students keep their mailing address up-to-date with the school and the university. This will ensure the prompt delivery of school-related information. Please note that official university mail for students on the IUPUI campus is sent to the student’s current address. Please complete a change-of-address using One.IU and notify the FSPH Division of Student Success whenever your mailing address changes.
Civil behavior is an essential characteristic of professionals and professionals-in-training, and it is necessary to creating and fostering a positive learning environment. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a courteous and civil manner in interactions with professors and fellow students in all interactions, including face-to-face interactions, email, and telephone conversations.
In the classroom, students are also expected to refrain from behaviors that are distracting to the instructor and classmates. Examples of these behaviors include, but are not limited to, reading the newspaper, working crossword puzzles, listening to headphones, talking or laughing with others, arriving late, using computers to surf the internet, allowing cell phones to ring or sending text messages, or other non-class activities. These behaviors are distracting to the instructor and to classmates, and the faculty will address these problems as they arise either in class or on an individual basis.
Disruptive conduct that interferes with teaching, research, administration, or other university or university-authorized activity will not be tolerated and will be reported immediately to the Office of the Dean of Students for disposition, which may result in disciplinary action including possible suspension and/or expulsion from the university. Each student should read the IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct in order to understand their responsibilities as a student.
Please contact FSPH Student Success if you need authorization to enroll in certain courses, such as independent readings courses, internships or independent project courses.
Graduate students may not elect to take a graded course using the pass/fail options.
Normally, courses may not be counted toward the degree requirements if the credit earned was completed more than five years prior to the awarding of the degree. The faculty advisor may, however, recommend that courses taken beyond this time frame be revalidated if it can be demonstrated that the student’s knowledge contained in the course(s) remains current.
Currency of knowledge may be demonstrated by passing a more advanced course in the same subject area, completing an internship or final project in which the student demonstrates substantial knowledge of the content of the course, applying the knowledge and skills from the course in the student’s current employment, serving as a teaching assistant in a comparable or more advanced course, or publishing scholarly research demonstrating substantial knowledge of the content and fundamental principles of the course. Each course under consideration for revalidation should be justified separately.
The purpose of a leave of absence notification is to certify that the student has left the university for a period of time due to their inability to perform the essential functions associated with being a student in their graduate program. To request a leave of absence, students must submit a Leave of Absence Request. Written support from the student’s faculty advisor confirming the need for a leave of absence must be documented in the student’s file.
Generally, a leave of absence will not be granted to a student who has completed less than seven credit hours or who is not in good academic standing. A non-medical leave of absence will not be granted if the request is submitted within two weeks of the end of a semester. The maximum cumulative leave of absence for personal or health problems may not exceed 18 months. No student may be granted a leave of absence solely because of poor academic performance.
This form should be submitted to the IUPUI Graduate Office, email@example.com, within two weeks of student’s notification to take leave of absence.
The purpose of the return from leave of absence notification is to certify that the student, previously granted leave of absence, is fit to return to the university and perform the essential functions of student’s position in their graduate program. Authorization is required, prior to returning to the program.
This form should be submitted to the IUPUI Graduate Office, firstname.lastname@example.org, one week prior to the student’s return to their graduate program.
Every Indiana University student is responsible for reading and understanding the Student Code of Conduct, as well as other expectations identified by individual schools or organizations relevant to an academic major, professional field, or on-campus residence. This Code of Students Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct is intended to identify basic rights, responsibilities, and expectations of all students and student groups, and to serve as a guide for the overall student experience at Indiana University.

Students may obtain their university ID number by viewing the Personal Information app in One.IU or by bringing photo identification to the IU Office of the Registrar.
Students on the Fort Wayne campus will have both an IU and Purdue student ID number. Since IU and Purdue share the same campus, you will use these numbers for various services. You can find your ID numbers by logging into your IU student center, for your IU number, and by logging into your go PFW account, for your PFW number.
It is important for students to withdraw formally from a course in a timely fashion, whenever circumstances prevent students from completing it. Students who stop attending class without properly withdrawing from the class will receive a grade of F.
**Note that withdrawals near the end of the term are rarely granted. Poor performance in a course is not grounds for a late withdrawal.
In the event that a student needs to withdraw from a course, the advisor should be consulted to explore all options and ensure a proper understanding of the process for withdrawing from courses.
There are two types of withdrawals, which depend on the timing of the withdrawal:
A timely withdrawal is one that occurs during the Office of the Registrar’s official withdrawal periods.
A late withdrawal is one that occurs after the official withdrawal periods. These withdrawals are considered only under extraordinary circumstances. Poor performance is not grounds for a late withdrawal. Students should be prepared to substantiate reasons for late withdrawal.
Examples of qualifying circumstances include:
Death of family or friend
Issues with a class/faculty (this has to be a well-documented situation)
Other major life event that severely impacts the student/family
Examples of documentation are not limited to but may include:
Doctor’s note on letterhead indicating that you are unable to complete the semester due to medical/psychological issues (include dates)
Students may not withdraw from a course after completing the course requirements. Students who seek to change a course grade to a W after the conclusion of a course must follow the Grade Appeal procedure. Such a request is rarely granted and requires extraordinary circumstances that prevented the student from withdrawing during the normal semester. Poor performance in a course is not grounds for seeking a grade change after the completion of a course.
Students may use either eDrop format to adjust their schedules. Instructions for eDrop are available at Student Central. Students can contact their FSPH advisor with questions about dropping or adding a course.
A deferred (R) grade indicates that the work is passing at the end of the semester, but a portion of the required coursework has not been completed. An “R” grade will appear only for Applied Practice Experiences (internships) and Integrated Learning Experiences (Capstone or Concentration Projects). The R grade will remain on the transcript until the work is completed and the advisor has assigned a grade.
Any fall or spring semester requests to drop or add courses after the first week requires the approval of the student’s advisor. Added courses after the first week also require the instructor’s signature for the course the student wishes to add. The eDrop and eAdd processes at specific points in the term, as outlined on the Student Central website.
Students are responsible for adjusting their schedules by following the official campus procedures. Students who fail to follow the official process for dropping a course may jeopardize their academic record. Students should be aware that not attending a class and/or not paying for a class are not ‘official’ ways of dropping a course.
The FSPH has adopted the grading system and grade point values of Indiana University and faculty typically use this scale unless otherwise noted in the course syllabus. Faculty have the discretion to issue “+” or “-” grades and they have the discretion to adjust the grading scale. Consult each course syllabus for the grading scale.
Students who feel there was a miscalculation in a final grade may speak directly with the course instructor to resolve the matter. Unresolved matters at the instructor level may be appealed in writing to the chair of the department. Unresolved matters at the department chair level may be appealed in writing to the dean.
A+ or A
A (4.0) Outstanding achievement. Student performance demonstrates full command of course material and evinces a high level of originality and/or creativity that far surpasses course expectation.
A- (3.7) Excellent achievement. Student performance demonstrates thorough knowledge of course materials and exceeds course expectations by completing all requirements in a superior manner.
B+ (3.3) Very good work. Student performance demonstrates above-average comprehension of the course materials and exceeds course expectations on all tasks as defined in the course syllabus.
B (3.0) Good work. Student performance meets designated course expectations, demonstrates understanding of the course materials, and performs at an acceptable level.
No points are assigned for the following grade symbols: I (incomplete), R (deferred), NC (no credit), NR (no report by the instructor), S/F (satisfactory/failure), or W (withdrawn).
An easy to use resource for calculating semester and projected GPAs can be found at Calculate My GPA.
A grade of incomplete (I) indicates that a substantial portion (but not all) of the work in a course has been satisfactorily completed by the student by the end of the semester. The incomplete can be given to a student facing a hardship such that it would be unjust to hold the student to the established time limits for completing the work.
Students should contact their instructor to determine if they are eligible for the incomplete grade. Poor performance is not grounds for an incomplete grade. The Fairbanks School of Public Health follows campus guidelines, which can be accessed at Incomplete Grade.
Incompletes must be removed within a time period specified by the instructor, but the time period may not exceed one year after the semester in which the student was enrolled in the course. The incomplete will revert to an ‘F’ if not completed within 12 months.
It is the student’s responsibility to attend every class session. The instructor is not obligated to excuse any student from assignments or presentations or exams, or allow a late (or early) submission. Each student is responsible for knowing their instructors’ policies for absences so the student can properly handle those days when they are ill or otherwise cannot attend class. Consult your course syllabi for instructors’ policies regarding absences.
The Office of the Registrar maintains all academic calendars. Semester and long-term academic campus calendars can be accessed at IUPUI Calendar.
Use the official calendar to find out the semester’s most important dates—including the first day of class, the last day you can drop a class with an automatic W, refund dates, and more.
Students register for courses via the Student Center app on One.IU. Visit Steps to Register for the IUPUI Registration Guide. Students may register by computer through the first week of classes.
Students who have not attended IUPUI in the previous semester must call the Office of the Registrar at 317-274-1519 or FSPH Student Success at 317-278-0337 to request “Term Activation” before they can register. Students who have been out of the IU system for two or more consecutive terms must contact the FSPH Office of Student Services at 317-278-2000 before registering. Information about late registration fees can be accessed at registration.
Any student who is a member of the U.S. armed forces or the Indiana Military Reserves and is called to active duty, specialized training, or as part of disaster relief efforts is encouraged to finish their coursework if at all possible. Students who cannot complete their courses have the option of withdrawing from all courses with 100 percent refund of tuition and fees, if they meet certain requirements.
Alternatively, students who are called to active duty may qualify for an incomplete grade. The complete campus policy is available at Veterans and Military Personnel.
Students may add themselves to the waitlist if a course has reached its maximum enrollment capacity. During the waitlist period, when a seat becomes available, students on the waitlist will be automatically enrolled in the course in the order they were placed on the waitlist. Student waitlist requests will automatically expire at the conclusion of the waitlist processing period.
NOTE: Enrollment status is based on the number of credit hours for which students are registered—waitlist hours do not count. Students needing to maintain a certain enrollment level should register for a schedule that will work for them and use the drop if enrolled option.
Students are encouraged to attend any class they are on the waitlist for. This will enable the student to continue on the course if added, eliminating the need to catch up on missed coursework.
Undergraduate students:The FSPH will make every effort to ensure that seniors who need closed courses for graduation will be able to enroll in these courses, but students are not guaranteed seats in these classes. For this reason, it is important for each student 1) to stay in good academic standing to ensure they will be able to enroll in courses on a priority basis and 2) to meet with their academic advisor to plan and periodically review the proposed schedule of classes to ensure staying on track for graduation.
