  2. All requirements must be completed within seven calendar years of initial enrollment in the program.
  3. An overall grade point average of at least 5.0 is required for program completion. A grade point average of less than 5.0 constitutes a sufficient basis for probationary status and, if the grade point average is not improved, dismissal from the program. Students with probationary status must make progress toward “good standing.” Failure to do so may result in required reduction in the maximum courses the student may enroll in or other actions. Credit toward satisfaction of degree requirements is not granted for courses in which a grade below C (e.g., C-) is received. Courses in which a grade below B is received may be retaken once for credit. In such cases, both the original grade and the grade received when the course is retaken appear on the transcript and are used in determining the student’s grade point average.
  4. Transfer credit is limited to no more than nine credits and must have been completed in the last 7 years with a grade of B or better in graduate courses while enrolled as a graduate student at an AACSB accredited program, and must not be part of another degree. Exceptions to this rule are accepted only in unusual circumstances and then only by approval of the SOM Graduate Programs Committee.
  5. Course waivers are limited to foundation courses.  Equivalency is determined by AACSB-International accreditation status of the institution, or by the School of Management Graduate Programs Committee. Grades in equivalent courses are also considered.  Waivers reduce the number of credits required to complete the MBA degree. However, completion of a minimum of 30 graduate credit hours (33 for a MBA with a concentration) at the University of Michigan-Flint is required to graduate.
