Faculty of Business Administration (2006/2007)
13.4 Continuation
  1. The Faculty Council of the Faculty of Business Administration constitutes the examining body for all examinations in Business courses. In addition, the standing of every student will be assessed by the Committee on Undergraduate Studies in accordance with the continuation requirements outlined in 2. and 3. below.

  2. Students in Terms A/B will be considered for continuation in the BBA program at the end of the Spring semester of their first year. At that time, for continuation after Terms A/B, students must have successfully completed the 30 credit hours prescribed in 2. of The Curriculum above, with an overall average on those 30 credit hours of at least 65%. Students who do not satisfy these requirements will be required to withdraw from the program.

    Students who have been required to withdraw following Terms A/B may be considered for readmission to the program in accordance with the entry under Admission Modes and Requirements above, with the heading Advanced Standing (for Current Memorial University of Newfoundland Students).

    A required withdrawal for failure to meet the continuation requirements from Terms A/B will not be reflected on a student's transcript.

  3. Following Terms A/B, BBA students must qualify for continuation after each term of study. For continuation, students must have an overall average of 60% over their last ten courses taken. In the event that a student has more courses than needed in the earliest term used, the courses with the highest grades in that term will be used.

    Students who fail to achieve these standards will be required to withdraw from the program. They may be considered for readmission after a lapse of two semesters. In order to be considered for readmission, students must formally apply for readmission.

    A required withdrawal for failure to meet continuation requirements in terms following Terms A/B will be reflected on a student's transcript.

  4. Students beyond Terms A/B who are required to withdraw a second time are not eligible for readmission into their program.

  5. The Committee on Undergraduate Studies of the Faculty of Business Administration may allow a student to continue who fails to achieve the standards outlined in 3. above. A decision of this nature will be made only for reasons acceptable to the Committee on Undergraduate Studies.
