The College of Business Administration (COBA) programs will require students to maintain minimum standards of academic performance. Using a 4.0 scale for course grades, the department requires that students maintain minimum grade point averages (GPA) for various categories of courses consisting of:
- 2.0 GPA in courses from the PMU Core Curriculum
- 2.0 GPA in degree-specific courses (courses from the Core Curriculum that COBA students must complete beyond the minimum requirement).
- 2.25 GPA in college required/elective courses.
- 2.25 GPA in courses within the academic major.
A student who receives a D or F in any course is required to repeat the course (in the case of an elective, another elective may be selected) and to achieve the required grade point average for that category of course. These students are required to participate in tutoring and remediation programs offered by the college faculty and the 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 are allowed over the student’s career at PMU. After the first repeat, prior grades will count toward the student’s GPA.
In order to graduate, all students at PMU are required to maintain an overall GPA of 2.0.
