During the academic review process at the end of each semester, the Office of Student Affairs monitors the academic performance of all students and makes available a support system for those in need of assistance.

Students whose cumulative GPAs fall below the minimum requirements are subject to probation or dismissal.

For dual degree students, the Business School GPA is determined by the grades received while in residence at the Business School; and includes all courses taken in those semesters, even those offered by the student's other school. Grades for Business School courses taken while in residence at their other school are not included in their cumulative GPA for the Business School.

Minimum cumulative GPA requirements by term and for graduation are as follows:

TIMING                                                             GPA REQUIREMENT                       CONSEQUENCE

After Term 1 GPA equal to or less than 5.9000 Warning
GPA equal to or less than 4.8000 Probation
GPA equal to or less than 4.4000 Dismissal
Subsequent Terms GPA equal to or less than 5.9000 Warning
GPA equal to or less than 5.2000 Probation
GPA equal to or less than 4.8000 Dismissal
Graduation GPA greater than or equal to 5.5000

Please note: A student can be on probation for one semester, at most. A second probation implies dismissal. A student can appeal his/her dismissal to the Academic Standards Committee that could allow the student to stay in the program under certain conditions. A student who was dismissed from the School might apply, via regular admissions procedure, to the program. If admitted, he/she might have the option of using credit for certain past courses taken at the School.

For dual degree students, the Business School GPA is determined by the grades received while in residence at the Business School; and includes all courses taken in those semesters, even those offered by the student's other school. Grades for Business School courses taken while in residence at their other school are not included in their cumulative GPA for the Business School.

Those dismissed for academic reasons may appeal the decision by petitioning the Academic Standards Committee. Students are entitled to one such appeal during their tenure at the School. Appeals must be filed in writing within 5 working days of the student’s receipt of the decision and must clearly state the grounds for appeal. If reinstatement is granted and the conditions are not satisfied within a specified period of time, dismissal is automatic and not subject to further appeal.

Students receiving federal financial aid should see the Office of Financial Aid's information regarding Satisfactory Academic Progress.
