School of Business Administration Degree Requirements
Students must comply with the degree requirements as stated in a single catalogue edition in place during the time they are enrolled. The catalogue to be followed is the one in effect at the time a student enrolls at UVM, unless the student requests in writing to follow a catalogue that is published subsequently during their enrollment at UVM. Students who have a separation from the University of three years or more must meet the requirements of the current catalogue at the date of readmission.
A minimum of 122 approved semester hours is required for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 is required. At least 60 credits of course work must be taken in subjects other than business. Students must complete 30 of the last 45 hours of credit in residence at UVM as a matriculated student. Students must complete a comprehensive curriculum exam in the first semester of their senior year.
A Basic Business Core grade point average of 2.25 is required by the completion of 60 credits in order to remain enrolled in the School of Business Administration.
The Business Field requirement courses and the Business Discipline Concentration courses must each be filled with at least 50 percent of business administration courses taken at UVM. Other UVM courses may be used towards these requirements if approved by the Undergraduate Studies Committee.
Students choosing an International Business concentration may complete all Business Discipline Concentration credit hours at an approved abroad institution. However, they will be required to complete 75 percent of their Business Field credit hours in UVM business courses or in other UVM courses approved by the Undergraduate Studies Committee.
Additional grade requirements exist for basic business core, business field, and business discipline concentration courses.
