Satisfactory Academic Progress

Satisfactory progress is defined as the maintenance of a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher in the program. A student not making satisfactory progress toward the degree may be placed on probation or dismissed from the program on the recommendation of the academic director of the MBA program.

A 3.00 cumulative GPA in courses counting toward the MBA is required for graduation. A course in which a grade of C- or lower is earned will not be counted toward the 36-credit MBA minimum, but will be computed in the GPA. A maximum of six MBA credits of C or C+ work will be accepted. A student who receives a C- will need to take a replacement course. A student earning a D+ or lower in a graduate-level course will be dismissed from the program regardless of where the course was taken. The student may petition for readmission to the program by writing to the academic director of the MBA program.

Graduation Requirement

Students need to be registered for a course in the term they are graduating.
