GPA Requirement for Graduation
Two cumulative grade averages are computed by dividing grade points earned by credit hours attempted while enrolled at Ross.
If either of the cumulative averages described above falls below 2.00 after their final term, a student is not eligible to receive the BBA degree.
A student's academic standing is reviewed at the completion of each term enrolled in the Ross School of Business. When students are found to be below the required GPA calculations, those students are notified and are placed on Academic Probation, and in some cases may be brought to a faculty Committee for review for possible withdrawal from the program.
Students placed on Academic Probation may have restrictions placed on their ability to register for future courses, and they will have to meet certain requirements in order to be taken off Academic Probation. These restrictions and requirements will be communicated to the student in writing. Note that students on academic probation are not in good standing until the conditions of their probation are met. Probation status will impact any scholarship support.
The faculty Committee considers withdrawal in all cases where either of the cumulative averages falls below 1.50 at the end of the first term of the junior year, or below 1.75 at the end of the second term of the junior year, or below 1.95 at the end of the third term of the senior year, or below 2.00 at the end of the final term. Students who have been required to withdraw may petition to be readmitted in a subsequent term. The appeal must contain documentation as to why circumstances have changed, to allow for successful completion of their degree.
