EMBA Saturday Minimum GPA Requirements

Minimum GPA Requirements, Probation and Dismissal

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

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

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

EMBA Saturday

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.

 

Students must complete at least 67% of credit hours attempted each semester to remain compliant with Satisfactory Academic Progress policy (SAP). Credit hour progression is based on a cumulative total of attempted credits to earned credits. For example, a student who attempts 9 credits in a semester must successfully complete at least 6 credits to meet the 67% requirement since completing only 3 credits would put them at 33% which is below the requirement.
