All MBA candidates must maintain an academic GPA of at least 3.0 (“B”) during their enrollment in their program. To graduate, a student must have at least a 3.0 GPA.  No course in which a grade below a “C” (2.0) is earned will be accepted as fulfilling a requirement of the graduate degree. For the purposes of determining academic standing, purely elective courses, foundation courses, or courses taken on a transient basis will not be included in the GPA computation.

An MBA candidate will be placed on probation at the conclusion of any semester in which the student’s grade point average is less than 3.0. The student has one semester (or at least two courses) to raise the average to a 3.0.  A graduate student is dismissed from the program if the student does not raise the grade point to 3.0 within one semester (or at least two courses) of being placed on academic probation. A student earning one grade of “F” in any graduate course (excluding foundation courses) will be dismissed from the program. A student can appeal to the MBA Advisory committee to retake a foundation course if they make an “F”. A second “F” in a foundation course will also result in immediate dismissal from the program. Courses in the MBA programs may not be repeated for credit.

Students dismissed from an MBA program have 30 days in which to appeal the action to the MBA Advisory Committee. The Committee will review the appeal and make a recommendation to the Dean who will rule on the appeal.

Grade Appeal Process
The MBA programs follow the Jacksonville University established procedures and appeals process for grade and academic dishonesty appeals.​
