Academic Policies

Gaining Academic Progress Workshops for CoB Freshmen

CoB Freshmen (B.B.A. and B.S.M.) candidates who earn a fall semester GPA of less than 2.5 will be required to attend a “Gaining Academic Progress (GAP) Workshop” and participate in a “Next-Semester Advising Intervention” as described below:

  • Gaining Academic Progress (GAP) Workshop: CoB freshmen who earn a first semester GPA of less than 2.5 will be required to attend a GAP Workshop, which is offered during the earliest weeks of each semester by the Allen Student Advising Center. Failure to attend one of these workshops will result in a “hold” being placed on your academic records, which will make you unable to register for future classes. CoB freshmen who need to attend a GAP Workshop will be emailed with scheduling instructions soon after fall grades are received. It is the student’s responsibility to follow the directions for scheduling the workshop.
  • Next-Semester Advising Intervention (NSAI): CoB freshmen who earn a first semester GPA of less than 2.5 will be required to meet with an academic advisor from the CoB Office of Student Services prior to the first day of the next semester to discuss a strategy for improving academic performance. Repeating selected courses will probably be advised. It is strongly recommended that these meetings be arranged as soon as possible after grades are posted to allow plenty of time to reschedule courses. Failure to meet for this purpose with an academic advisor from the CoB Office of Student Services by the first day of the following semester will have two results:
    1. A note will be placed in the student’s academic file that will remove any possibility of future academic appeals;
    2. A hold will be placed on the student’s academic records, which will make students unable to register for future classes;.

Students will be notified by email if they need to schedule a “Next-Semester Advising Intervention”. On-campus interventions are strongly recommended, but the meeting may also be conducted by telephone. NSAI appointments can be arranged by calling the CoB Office of Student Services at 740.593.2042.

CoB Freshman Drop Policy

At the end of their second consecutive semester, freshmen B.B.A. and B.S.M. candidates who have earned a cumulative GPA that is below 2.5 will be dropped from the College of Business and transferred into University College where they will work with an Academic Advisor to plan their new major. Students who are required to leave the College of Business as result of this policy may apply for re-admission to the College of Business when their cumulative GPA has been raised to at least 2.5. It should be understood that this interruption could extend a student’s time at Ohio University. Students whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 after two consecutive semesters will not meet the requirements for transfer to another academic college at Ohio University and so will need to leave Ohio University.

Ohio University Probation and Dismissal Policy

Academic Probation

At the close of the semester, the academic record of each enrolled undergraduate student (regardless of student enrollment status) will be reviewed to verify the accumulative GPA. At the time of the review, if you do not have the required 2.0 minimum accumulative GPA, you will be placed on academic probation. To be removed from probation, your accumulative GPA must reach at least a 2.0.

Students with fewer than 90 credit hours earned: If you have fewer than 90 semester credit hours earned and are not removed from probation, you will be continued on probation or academically dismissed. To be continued on probation, you must have either 1) semester GPA at least 2.0 or 2) accumulative GPA equal to or greater than the minimum GPA defined by your hours earned:

 

Total Hours Earned

 

Minimum Accumulative GPA to be Continued on Probation

  0 — 29.99   1.6
  30.00 — 59.99   1.8
  60.00 — 89.99   1.9

If you are on probation and fail both of the criteria described above, you will be academically dismissed.

Students with 90 or more semester credit hours earned: If you are on probation in a given semester and you have 90 or more semester credit hours earned at the end of that semester, you must achieve a 2.0 accumulative GPA to avoid academic dismissal.

Retaking a Core Business Course (for B.B.A. candidates)

You will be limited to three attempts (two retakes) at the College’s core courses. If you have made three unsuccessful attempts at a required core course, you will be notified that you have been dropped from the College.

Core courses include ACCT 1010  and 1020 ; BA 1100  , and MGT 4800J ; BUSL 2550 ; FIN 3000  ; MGT 2100 ; MIS 2020  ; MKT 2400 ; MGT 3200 QBA 1720 , QBA 2720 .

Retaking a Course in the Business Cluster (for B.B.A. and B.S.M. candidates)

BA 2500  , MGT 2100 , MIS 2020 , and MKT 2400  must be taken in a 12-credit cluster during the late sophomore/early junior year (see recommended course sequence). Students failing one course in the cluster will be required to retake the course in a stand-alone or other equivalent form. Students failing more than one course in the cluster will be required to retake the entire cluster.

If you need to retake a core course that is part of a cluster, go to the College’s Office of Student Services in Copeland Hall 214 to obtain permission to get into the appropriate course(s).
