Degree Requirements

Below are a few things to keep in mind when working toward your graduate business degree.

You must maintain a 3.0 GPA on all courses taken for graduate credit or you will be put on academic probation and are in danger of being dismissed from the graduate program.

  • No credits earned with grades below C will be accepted for graduate degree requirements.
  • However, grades of D and F are computed into the graduate grade point average.
  • When courses are repeated, all grades are included in computing the graduate grade point average.
  • No grade below a B will be accepted for transfer credit.
  • Students who earn 3 or more grades of C or below in graduate level courses will be dismissed from the MBA or MAcc programs.

The time limit for fulfilling the requirements for a master’s degree is six years. All courses included on the Program of Study must be current at the time of completion of the degree. An extension of time form, available on the Graduate School Web site, can be used to request a one‐time, one‐year extension. The request must be signed by the major professor/adviser and the dean of the college and submitted to the Office of the Graduate School for final approval.
