School of Business Administration Academic Standards

Students will be placed on trial if their semester or cumulative grade-point average is less than 2.0. Students will remain on trial until both semester and cumulative grade-point averages reach at least 2.0 or until they are dismissed. Students on trial will be given a target semester grade-point average to achieve by the end of the following semester.

Students shall be dismissed from the University in the following situations: (1) failure to achieve the target grade-point average while on trial; (2) failure of at least half their course credits in any semester while maintaining a cumulative grade-point average of less than 2.0. First year students who have just completed their first semester will be dismissed if they earn a grade-point average of 1.0 or less and fail at least half their course credits.

A student may appeal a dismissal in writing to the Undergraduate Studies Committee within the time frame stipulated in the dismissal letter if there are circumstances supporting an extension of trial status. Detailed information on the criteria for dismissal may be obtained from the School of Business Student Services Office.
