Little 500 Protest Form
If your protest was denied, you may submit an electronic appeal in order to dispute the ruling with the Little 500 Appeals Board.
- Protest: The student must submit an electronic protest form via the IUSF website along with supporting documents by 11:59 pm October 7, 2019.
NOTE: IUSF staff runs a grade and credit hours check of all registered Little 500 participants.
- IUSF Decision: The Little 500 Race Director will review the protest and documentation and conduct any necessary investigation and/or interviews. He or she will then make a decision. If the Race Director rules favorably, then the protest is passed. If he or she rules against the protest, then the student has the opportunity to file an appeal with the IUSF Appeals Board. If the student does not choose to file an appeal, then the protest is considered to be denied and cannot be submitted again.
- Appeal: A student wishing to appeal a protest must submit an electronic appeal via the IUSF website to the IUSF Appeals Board along with payment of $30 by 11:59 pm on October 21, 2019.
- Hearing and Final Ruling: The Appeals Board will take place on October 23, 2019. The Appeals Board will hear the verbal appeal of the student and/or his/her representative. The student appealing must be present at the hearing. The Race Director will present the case on behalf of IUSF and in support of the original ruling. After both sides have presented arguments, the Appeals Board will deliberate in private and reach a final decision. The student appealing will be notified in writing of the outcome.
