Graduation Requirements and Grading
To qualify for the award of the degree of Master of Business Administration, a student must fulfill the following minimum requirements:
- Admitted to candidacy for the degree in the School of Business
- Satisfactorily complete all academic requirements with a cumulative grade point average grade of “B” (CGPA = 3.0) or better
- File an application for the award of the degree at the Records Office on or before the date published in the University Calendar
- Complete all academic requirements within five (5) years from the date of first registration, unless a petition for extension is granted. Extensions are granted only for compelling reasons.
Students are expected to maintain a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 3.0. A student whose CGPA falls below 3.0 will be placed on academic probation. S/he may be separated from the program unless the minimum CGPA of 3.0 is achieved within the next 9 credit hours.
Passing grades for graduate study range from “A” to “C”. Any work earning a grade below “C” will be assigned the grade of “F”. Incomplete work – grade of “I” – must be completed within one calendar year of the completion of the course or will be changed to “F”. A student receiving the grade of “F” should attempt to repeat immediately the course in which the grade was received. In computing the CGPA the grade from the first repeat of a course replaces the original grade. Grades from transfer or waiver credit and from non-MBA courses taken after the beginning of the program are excluded from CGPA calculations.
