MBA/MAcc/MSCM Grade Requirements

Grade Requirements for Graduation

Effective for students admitted Spring/Summer 2012 term or later, a MBA. MAcc, or MSCM student must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.00 in order to graduate. To learn more about how a GPA equivalent is calculated from our Ross grades, see our Academic Honors website.

For students admitted prior to Spring/Summer 2012 term,  if a MBA, MAcc or MSCM student receives 60 percent or more of his or her cumulative credit hours as “Low Pass” or “Fail”, the student will not be eligible to graduate.

Academic Review Status

Effective for students admitted Spring/Summer 2012 term or later, all graduate Ross School students are required to maintain the equivalent of a 2.00 grade point average. If any term or cumulative grade point average is below a 2.00 equivalent, the student’s record is reviewed and the student may be placed on Academic Review Status or may be asked to withdraw from the program. In addition, any grade of "Fail" will also result in review of the record for possible disciplinary action ranging from being placed on Academic Review Status through dismissal from the program. If a core class is failed, students have one chance to re-take the class and receive a passing grade. If the core class is failed a second time, the student is withdrawn from the program (subject to appeal for extenuating circumstances).

Note that students on academic or disciplinary probation (see section II. Statement of Community Values) are not in good standing until the conditions of their probation are met, and are not eligible to graduate until they meet conditions of good academic standing. Probation status may impact any scholarship support.

Students asked to withdraw may appeal the decision. 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 the degree.

For students admitted prior to Spring/Summer 2012 term, if a Full-Time MBA, MAcc, MSCM or WMBA student receives 60 percent or more of his or her credit hours as "Low Pass" or "Fail" in any one of the first three terms, or cumulatively, that student’s record is reviewed, and the student may be placed on Academic Review Status or may be asked to withdraw from the program. For Evening MBA students, if 60 percent or more of credit hours in any band of 15 credits is at Low Pass or Fail, the student's record will be reviewed. In addition, any grade of "Fail" also shall result in review of the record for possible disciplinary action ranging from being placed on Academic Review Status through dismissal from the program. If a student earns a grade of "Fail" in a core course, the course must be repeated to meet degree requirements.

Note that students on academic or disciplinary probation (see section II. Statement of Community Values) are not in good standing until the conditions of their probation are met. Probation status will impact any scholarship support.

Students asked to withdraw may appeal the decision. 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 the degree.
