Academic Performance

In addition to the Quality of Work Standards established by the Graduate College, students in the Logistics & Supply Chain Management certificate program may repeat a BSAD 8xxx level course in which they receive any grade, including "W" or "I" one time.   If the class is not successfully completed on the second attempt, the student will be dismissed from the Logistics & Supply Chain Management certificate program. 

Each semester, student files will be reviewed where a student received a grade lower than a “B” (3.0 out of 4.0).  Students earning more than one grade of "C+ "or lower (or any single grade below "C" (1.67 on a 4.0 scale)) will be automatically dismissed from the Logistics & Supply Chain Management certificate program. 

Dismissed students will be immediately administratively withdrawn from all MBA courses in which they are enrolled for credit. Students who have been dismissed may not enroll in any MBA courses for credit in any subsequent semester or summer session until reinstatement has been granted by the CBA GPC and the graduate dean.
