The transdisciplinary programs and coursework offered by the School for the Future of Innovation in Society focus on the intersections of science, technology, development, innovation and society, enabling students to engage and rethink the social and technical aspects of innovation. They are then able to envision, design and build the futures people would want to inhabit. The school’s transdisciplinary team of faculty has an extraordinary track record of research and service. The faculty members are dedicated to teaching and mentoring students and cultivating the knowledge, skills, and dispositions with which the school’s graduates will approach and construct the future.
At ASU, students are part of an academic community engaged in learning and inquiry and based on the quest for truth, thus committing themselves to a path of honesty and integrity. Therefore, it is expected that they integrate that responsibility in their conduct. Students’ course work, research, and projects must be original and reflect individual effort and integrity. When in doubt about appropriate conduct, students should consult a faculty mentor to seek clarification. The School for the Future of Innovation in Society has a zero-tolerance policy for any form of academic misconduct. Penalties for unethical behavior range from being placed on academic probation to being dismissed from the program.
The ASU Student Academic Integrity Policy determines all related violations of this policy and will be strictly enforced and followed. A copy of the policy is available at here.
日本一本道a不卡免费To be considered in academic good standing in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, students must achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher.
Students who do not achieve a 2.00 GPA will be placed on university academic probation and must meet with an advisor to discuss academic success strategies. Students on academic probation will be required to take UNI 220 Academic Refresher. UNI 220 will appear on the students' DARS as a graduation requirement. In addition, students who have fewer than 24 credit hours will be required to participate in the ASU PASS  program.
日本一本道a不卡免费Within one semester, a student on academic probation must do one of the following:
Students who fail to meet the criteria for continued probation may be disqualified from ASU. Students who have been disqualified may attend summer sessions, but not fall or spring sessions.
日本一本道a不卡免费Once readmitted, the student may be placed on academic probation for at least one semester. Students on probation will have one semester to raise their cumulative or semester GPA to meet ASU academic good standing (2.00). Failure to do so will result in disqualification from the university.
Academic Policy Appeals
Academic appeals regarding school policies should be discussed with the student’s academic advisor, and students may be required to submit a petition. Some petitions may require a secondary review by the ASU University Undergraduate Standards Committee. Standards Petition Form (link to our standards petition form)
All students are encouraged to seek advising before registration. Students must follow the calendar published in the registration and tuition payment guide each semester for information and deadlines pertaining to enrollment, adding or dropping classes and withdrawals.
In addition to information provided by an academic advisor, students are expected to read the requirements for university general studies and major degree requirements in their edition of the ASU academic catalog. The ASU academic catalog is the governing source for all degree requirements.
Advising Information can be found here.
日本一本道a不卡免费The following students in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society must receive advising clearance prior to course registration:
Students are encouraged to check their advising status requirements each semester before attempting any registration transactions through My ASU.
日本一本道a不卡免费Students enrolling in courses offered by the School for the Future of Innovation in Society are expected to follow the rules and deadlines specified in this catalog and the current registration and tuition payment guide. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor before registration.
Students may enroll in a maximum number of 18 credit hours per fall or spring semester, with a maximum number of nine credits taken in session A or session B. Students may enroll in a maximum of 14 credits for a summer session, with no more than seven credits in session A or session B. Any student wishing to enroll in more than the 18 credit hour limit in the fall or spring (or 14 in summer) or more than the nine credit hour limit in an A or B session (or seven hour limit in summer) should first meet with their academic advisor to discuss a course overload. Please contact SFISAdvising@localrestaurantdirect.com to request a credit hour limit increase.
More details on credit hour limits are available here.
Students wishing to repeat courses and possibly replace prior course grades must follow the policy stated in the university's Student Services Manual日本一本道a不卡免费 regarding the number of credit hours that can be repeated and the types of courses that are eligible for a grade replacement.
Generally, students may not repeat an undergraduate course for credit when a grade of "C" or higher is earned. Students wishing to repeat a course with a grade of “C” or higher must petition日本一本道a不卡免费 the School for the Future of Innovation in Society Undergraduate Program Committee.
Students wishing to repeat a course for a third time must petition the School for the Future of Innovation in Society Undergraduate Program Committee. Students should contact the advising office for information.
Pass/Fail Grade Options
日本一本道a不卡免费A grade of “Y” (satisfactory) contributes to a student’s earned hours, but does not affect the GPA. A failing grade of “E” is calculated into the GPA.
The pass/fail grade option may be used under the following conditions:
School for the Future of Innovation in Society students may not enroll under the pass/fail option in the following courses:
Audit Grade Option
日本一本道a不卡免费Students may choose to audit certain courses in which they attend regularly scheduled class sessions but earn no credit. Students should obtain instructor approval before registering for the courses. The option to audit is not available for all courses. This grade option may not be changed after the drop/add period.
General Studies Courses
In order to earn an undergraduate degree at ASU students must take a distribution of general studies courses to ensure that they get not only depth, but a breadth of education. These courses fall into five core areas – Literacy and Critical Inquiry; Mathematical Studies; Humanities, Arts and Design; Social-Behavioral Sciences: and Natural Sciences – and three awareness areas – Cultural Diversity in the United States; Global Awareness; and Historical Awareness. To help students graduate quickly and to illustrate the interdisciplinary education the SFIS undergraduate programs offer, a number of FIS courses meet a variety of general studies requirements. Courses that meet the different general studies requirements are generally noted in the course catalog. However, it is possible in special circumstances for a student to get general studies credit for a course that is not officially registered as a General Studies course. To request such a replacement course, students should fill out and submit this form.
The steps outlined here, beginning with step A, must be followed by any student seeking to appeal a grade. Student grade appeals must be processed in the regular semester immediately following the issuance of the grade in dispute (by commencement for fall or spring) regardless whether the student is enrolled at the university. It is university policy that students filing grievances and those who are witnesses are protected from retaliation. Students who believe they are victims of retaliation should immediately contact the dean of the college or school in which the course is offered.
A. The aggrieved student must first undergo the informal procedure of conferring with the instructor, stating any evidence and reasons for questioning that the grade received was not given in good faith. The instructor is obliged to review the matter, explain the grading procedure used and show how the grade in question was determined. If the instructor is a graduate assistant and this interview does not resolve the difficulty, the student may then take the problem to the faculty member in charge of the course (regular faculty member or director of the course sequence).
日本一本道a不卡免费B. If the grading dispute is not resolved in step A, the student may appeal to the department chair or other appropriate chair of the area within the department (if any). The department chair may confer with the instructor to handle the problem. Step B applies only in departmentalized colleges or schools.
C. If these discussions are not adequate to settle the matter to the complainant's satisfaction, the student may then confer with the dean of the college or school concerned (or the dean-designate) who will review the case. If unresolved, the dean or designate may refer the case to the college or school academic grievance hearing committee to review the case formally. In most instances, however, the grievance procedure does not go beyond this level.
日本一本道a不卡免费The following procedure takes place after steps A, B and C (or A and C) have been completed.
D. Each college or school has on file in the office of the dean (and in each department of the college or school) the procedures and composition of the undergraduate or graduate academic grievance hearing committee for student grievances. Each college or school committee shall operate under grievance procedures as stated, which satisfy due process requirements. The committee shall always meet with the student and the instructor in an attempt to resolve the differences. At the conclusion of the hearing, the committee shall send its recommendations to the dean.
E. Final action in each case will be taken by the dean after full consideration of the committee's recommendation. Any recommended grade changes may be made by the dean. The dean shall inform the student, instructor, department chairperson (if any), registrar and grievance committee of any action taken.
日本一本道a不卡免费All candidates for graduation are required to complete at least 120 credit hours, of which at least 45 hours must consist of upper-division courses. A minimum ASU cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for graduation. All new School for the Future of Innovation in Society freshman students are required to enroll in the FIS 101 course during their first ASU semester.
日本一本道a不卡免费The school offers a minor in Innovation in Society. Students may not use courses in their minors toward their majors and, similarly, students may not use courses in their majors to fill the requirements of their minors.
Concurrent degrees may not be from the same discipline or have overlap in the core courses required for each major.
Students must earn at least 30 unique credit hours for each degree.
To request a concurrent degree, the student must meet with an academic advisor and fill out the petition form. If the second program is outside of SFIS, the student is also required to get approval from the other college or school that offers the concurrent degree program.
Critical and Necessary Requirements
日本一本道a不卡免费All undergraduate majors at ASU provide an eight-term course plan leading to four-year graduation called a major map. School for the Future of Innovation in Society students must meet the critical and necessary requirements listed on their major maps.
A student who does not comply with the critical requirements is off track and will have a hold placed on their record, and the student will be required to meet with the School for the Future of Innovation in Society academic advisor to have the hold removed. For more information about critical requirements, please refer to the corresponding major map or eAdvisor.
Students who have been disqualified from ASU may be readmitted to the School for the Future of Innovation in Society for a fall or spring semester if they complete one of the following:
Once readmitted, the student may be placed on academic probation for at least one semester. Students on probation will have one semester to raise their cumulative or semester GPA to meet ASU academic good standing (2.00). Failure to do so will result in disqualification from the university.
The school’s graduate policies are guided by the university polices on graduate studies. For details, please see here.
日本一本道a不卡免费Each student in the school will be required to file an interactive plan of study. Once matriculated, the student will meet with the faculty or program advisors to prepare their plan.
日本一本道a不卡免费While the ultimate responsibility of understanding the requirements of their respective academic degrees lies with each student, the School for the Future of Innovation in Society provides advising services to students that will help them understand the school’s policies and procedures and allow them to set their academic goals.
Students must fulfill all requirements of their individual graduate programs and abide by all university policies, including those of the Division of Graduate Education. Full details of policies and procedures related to the school’s graduate programs can be found on each program’s webpage here.
Students are expected to make planned and systematic progress toward completion of their graduate program. This progress includes being in good academic standing and achieving the benchmarks and requirements set by the programs, including additional satisfactory progress policies. Students are responsible for verifying all these requirements are met as well as additional requirements on satisfactory academic progress, probation and disqualifications are met.
Students failing to satisfy their graduate program requirements or the benchmarks outlined below may be recommended to the Division of Graduate Education for dismissal from their programs. For details, visit here.
To be in good academic standing, students are required to maintain a minimum 3.00 GPA on all GPAs (plan of study, cumulative, and graduate). These include all course work on their approved interactive plan of study, on all postbaccalaureate course work taken at ASU, and on graduate credit courses (those numbered 500 or higher).
日本一本道a不卡免费A student with a cumulative GPA less than 3.00 will be placed on academic probation and may be subject to dismissal. If any GPA falls below 3.00, the student must develop, with the advisor, an academic performance improvement plan that includes the conditions and timeframes for making satisfactory academic progress in their degree program. The student is considered to be on academic probation until the conditions specified in the academic performance improvement plan are met and GPAs are greater than 3.00. Course work such as research and dissertation and any course that is graded with a “Z” (in progress) or “Y” (satisfactory) cannot be included in the GPA.
日本一本道a不卡免费Students must also satisfy the maximum time limit for graduation from the student’s graduate program (six years for master’s degrees and certificates, 10 years for doctorates). Doctoral students must comply with the five-year time limit for completion after passing the comprehensive examinations.
日本一本道a不卡免费Students must successfully pass any comprehensive exams, qualifying exams, foreign language exams, and an oral defense of the proposal or prospectus for the thesis, dissertation or any other culminating events required for their program.
日本一本道a不卡免费Students must stay continuously enrolled in their graduate degree program. Failing to do so without a Division of Graduate Education-approved request to maintain continuous enrollment is considered to be a lack of academic progress and will lead to automatic dismissal of the student from the graduate program.
Graduate Students who disagree with the final grade they received for a graduate course should refer to this document to determine the steps they can take to appeal the grade.
