- The MBA Program Director will send a notification of unsatisfactory progress to any MBA student who has a grade point average below 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
- Students who have been notified of unsatisfactory academic progress will be required to raise their grade point averages to 3.0 within six credit hours. The Program Director shall have the discretion to extend this period if significant progress has been made toward reaching a 3.0.
- If sufficient progress toward reaching the 3.0 grade point average has not been made after completion of six credit hours, students shall be notified that they will be dropped from the MBA program. At that time, students will be dropped from all business courses in which they have enrolled for the next term.
- Students shall have 30 days from the time that they are dropped from the program to appeal this decision. The appeal should be made to the MBA Program Director; this appeal will be forwarded to the MBA Admissions and Retention Committee for its recommendation. The MBA Program Director shall make the final decision regarding all appeals. If an appeal is granted, the student may register for additional business courses. If the appeal is not granted, no further registration in courses from the School of Business will be allowed.
