A cumulative average of C (2.0) is required for graduation for all programs. In addition, a 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for the concentration courses and any elective course work which is taken in the same area as the concentration. A 2.0 cumulative GPA is required in all concentrations if more than one concentration is chosen.

MBA students will receive credit for a concentration course in which they receive a C– or better. Any grade lower than C– in a concentration course does not count as credit toward the degree and the student must repeat the course or an approved substitute. Students must receive C– or better in any elective which is in the same area as the concentration(s).

Specialized masters programs follow the MBA concentration policy for minimum grades and grade point averages.
