CSUF utilizes a combination of traditional and nontraditional grading options.
Note: All courses in the Business Administration, Professional Business concentration program are graded using the letter grade option.
- Traditional: Letter grade option (plus/minus may be assigned)
- Nontraditional: Credit/No Credit Option
Minimum Grade Requirements for the B.A. Business Administration, Professional Business program:
Please note ALL grade point average (GPA) requirements in the Graduation Requirements section.
- All upper-division business core courses must be completed with a “C” or better
- The capstone (MGMT 449) must be completed with a “C” or better
- The Global Business Requirement must be completed with a “D” or better
- The upper-division General Education courses must be completed with a “D” or better
- Concentration courses must be completed with a “D minus“ or better
- Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA* for the concentration
A grade of “F” is considered failing and does not award units. Therefore, any course in which a student earns a grade of “F” must be repeated.
Academic Probation and Disqualification Policy
Students are placed on academic probation if their cumulative or CSUF GPA falls below a 2.0. Once on probation, the student will have the following semester of attendance to raise the GPA and be removed from academic probation.
A student on academic probation is subject to academic disqualification if the student’s GPA falls below:
- Freshman (0 – 29.9 units) = 1.50
- Sophomore (30 – 59.9 units) = 1.70
- Junior (60 – 89.9 units) = 1.85
- Senior (90 or more units) = 1.95
Students may repeat courses for which a grade of “C minus” or below was earned. Students may repeat up to 28 units at Cal State Fullerton and may attempt a course a maximum of three times. Up to 16 units of coursework at CSUF can be repeated for “grade forgiveness” resulting in only the most recently earned grades and grade points being used in calculating the GPA. The original grade will remain on the academic record. Please review the University Policy Statement UPS 300.015 for a detailed description of this policy.
