1.1. Academic Second Chance

Request for Undergraduate Academic Second Chance  

Academic Second Chance (ASC) is an appeal procedure for an undergraduate student to request academic forgiveness for their courses. It applies to a single semester or series of semesters (as of Fall 2014, semesters are not required to be continuous) within which a student earned grades lower than a C. If approved, those terms would be excluded when calculating the student’s grade point average. No courses taken during the semesters approved for ASC would apply toward requirements for a degree.

A student who wishes to petition for ASC must have been separated from all institutions of higher learning for a minimum of two consecutive calendar years.  If a student withdrew from a semester and the withdrawal appears on their transcript, the student is considered “enrolled” during that term.

An ASC request form may be submitted by an enrolled student after the student has reentered Murray State University and has earned a minimum of 12 new degree credit hours at Murray State University with a minimum GPA of 2.50 on all hours since re-enrolling. ASC requests are only valid for the student’s first baccalaureate degree.  The ASC request form must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office, specifying the terms for which ASC is requested.

ASC courses remain a part of the transcript with a notation that academic second chance has been applied and that grades are not included in GPA calculations. If a course excluded by ASC was used as a repeat of an earlier course, the original course which had been excluded from grade point average consideration due to the repeat policy will be added back into the GPA as though it had never been repeated.

The new GPA is the official GPA of the university. Students need to be aware that some schools, agencies, academic areas, organizations, and scholarship programs may not recognize or allow ASC. ASC may be declared only once and may not be revoked.

Students may apply for academic forgiveness by printing and completing the Request for Academic Second Chance form. The form should be mailed to:

Registrar’s Office
Murray State University
113 Sparks Hall
Murray, KY 42071-3312

 

Request for Graduate Academic Second Chance

Graduate students may request Academic Second Chance (ASC) through their advisor by submitting the Request for Academic Second Chance Form and a justification letter that includes details about the extenuating circumstances that caused hardship during the term(s) for which ASC is requested, as well as identification of specific terms for ASC. Academic Second Chance must be approved by the program director, department chair (where applicable), collegiate graduate coordinator or academic dean, and the university graduate coordinator.

1.2. Academic Suspension Appeals Hearing

Academic Appeal Hearing form

A student who has been academically suspended or dismissed from the university and feels it was due to circumstances beyond his/her control may appeal in writing to the Registrar for special consideration. If the Registrar desires, the student’s request can be forwarded to the Academic Appeals Committee for dispensation. This committee is composed of nine members; two student members, the Retention Services Director, and one faculty member from each of the academic colleges; the School of Agriculture; and the School of Nursing and Health Professions. The committee reviews each case and makes decisions based on information provided to them by the student or other individuals. The student may be present for the hearing or may present his case in writing only. The student comes before the committee alone. Guests are not able to speak or be present.

The completed form, with attached documentation, should be returned to the Registrar’s Office. All appeal forms must be on file in the Registrar’s Office no later than seven (7) days prior to the beginning of the relevant semester.

Q. Can students challenge a graduate-level course?

A. No, page 40 of the 2016-17 Bulletin states "Graduate students may not obtain graduate credit through testing" and "Graduate Students - Murray State University does not grant credit for correspondence courses, portfolio-based experiential learning, or for the completion of a challenge examination or any national testing-for-credit in any courses."

Q. What if a student wants to challenge a course but it is not listed on Marketplace?

A. The student should contact the department to see if a challenge exam is offered for that course. If so, the department representative should contact the Office of the Registrar to get it added to the Marketplace store.

1.10. Grade Appeal


Grade Appeal Form

Murray State University recognizes that differences of opinion or interpretation may arise between students and faculty members regarding the assignment of course grades. The university urges the student to first seek resolution through informal discussion with the appropriate faculty member.

It should be noted that situations involving academic misconduct should be directed to the University Judicial Board.

The student initiates a meeting with the instructor of the class. The meeting must take place within the first twenty (20) days of the semester immediately following the term during which the incident of grievance is alleged to have occurred, exclusive of summer session.

If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily at the instructor level, meetings with the chair and dean must follow within ten (10) days of the initial discussion with the instructor. At the time of each meeting, the instructor, chair and dean must sign and date the grade appeal form.

Once all means of informal resolution on the collegiate level have been exhausted the student must submit a completed grade appeal form with supporting documentation to the Office of the Registrar within fifteen (15) days of the initial discussion with the instructor if the matter is not resolved satisfactorily.

The chair of the Academic Appeals Board shall convene that committee within twenty (20) days of the receipt of the grade ap­peal form and supporting documentation.

Copies of the recommendation and final decision by the provost shall be sent to the appropriate academic dean, the student, and the instructor, within ten (10) days of the completion of the hearing, unless notified otherwise. The text of the recommendation and all pertinent testimony and gathered data shall be kept in confidence.

NOTE: If at any point in this process, the student alleges that actions have taken place that may be in violation of the Murray State Univer­sity Non-Discrimination policy this process must be suspended and the matter directed to the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Access.

Under no circumstances will an appeal of a grade be accepted after one year from the end of the semester in which the grade was received.
