By the way I was referencing the 2012 IRC Sect. 602.6 code.

This depends on how much the stud is over notched. The stud is permitted to be notched up to 25%, over that you will need to repair or replace. You certainly may install a header as you suggest or you can install a stud shoe (Simpson Strong-Tie # HSS/SS). 

Hope this helps. Good luck!

I have an over-notched stud in a bearing wall.

 

Is there a simple remedy for this? I was thinking to attach a splice plate to the face of the stud. 

 

or perhaps, since the notch is near the bottom, I thought perhaps create a header at the top of the wall so the loads are transferred 

to either side of this stud.  (Just like a door frame but encased in gypsum)

 

Thoughts?
