The objectives are:
a) to ensure that the John Molson School of Business can certify that all of its graduates are qualified to enter their profession;
b) to ensure that students can, with the assistance or intervention of the John Molson School of Business, assess themselves objectively, and plan programs of study designed to meet their individual needs.
Note: The GPA regulations apply to all students, including those with Visiting status, registered in programs offered by the John Molson School of Business. This also includes the Minor in Business Studies and certificate programs.
(See Section 16.3.10 Academic Performance for definition of AGPA).
Acceptable standing requires that a student obtain an AGPA of at least 2.00.
Note: Although a “C-” grade (1.70 grade points) is designated as satisfactory in Section 16.1.11 Grading System under Section 16.1 General Information, an AGPA of 2.00 is required for acceptable standing.
Students in acceptable standing must repeat all courses in which failing grades were obtained provided that these courses are required for their program.
Conditional standing results when a student obtains an AGPA between 1.50 and 2.00. Students in conditional standing may not write supplemental examinations but may proceed subject to the following conditions:
Failed standing results when a student obtains an AGPA of less than 1.50 or fails to achieve acceptable standing after being on conditional standing at the last assessment.
Students must satisfy all course requirements, be in acceptable standing, and have a minimum final graduation GPA of 2.00. The standings of potential graduates who have attempted less than 12 credits since their last assessment are determined after adding the grade points obtained for these credits to those included in the computation of the GPA of the last assessment period. Students who fail to meet acceptable standing but meet conditional standing will have the following options:
a) register for 12 credits and meet the criteria for acceptable standing;
b) register for fewer than 12 credits. In this case, standing will be determined after adding the grade points obtained for these credits to those included in the computation of the GPA of the last assessment period.
Note: Dean’s Office is to be understood as being the appropriate member of the Dean’s Office, normally the Associate Dean, Academic and Student Affairs, or delegate.
