The College of Business Administration will require minimum standards of academic performance from its students. Using a 4.0 scale for course grades, the college will require that students maintain minimum grade point averages (GPA) for various categories of courses consisting of:
- 2.0 GPA in all courses from the PMU Core Curriculum
- 2.0 GPA in all core business courses required by the college
- 2.25 GPA in all courses within the major
A student who receives a D (1.0) or F in any course will be required to repeat the course and to achieve the required grade point average for that category of course. In the case of an elective, another elective may be selected. These students will be required to participate in tutoring and remediation programs offered by the college faculty and the PMU Learning Resources Center.
Students may repeat a course one time, with additional repeats allowed at the discretion of the faculty. However, no more than 10 repeated courses will be allowed over the student’s career at the PMU. After the first repeat, prior grades will count toward the student’s GPA. For example: A student who receives a D followed by an A will have the D erased and replaced with the A on the transcript. A student who receives an F followed by a D followed by an A will have the F erased, and both the D and the A will be averaged into the GPA.
In order to graduate, all students at the PMU will be required to maintain an overall GPA of 2.0.
