Students must earn an overall 2.75 GPA in all required business courses in order to meet graduation requirements.
Students who select more than one major, or who select a major and minor or minors within business, may only take two overlapping courses with the exception of the business or major core. This policy establishes the uniqueness of each intellectual discipline and assures the intellectual integrity of dual majors and minors.
Business majors are required to take two mathematics courses that will also meet the Mercyhurst University Core Curriculum and carry the MATH prefix. No required business or math courses may be taken on a pass-fail basis by business majors or minors. Students who earn less than a “C” in a required business or mathematics course must repeat the course. Mathematics course grades are not calculated into the business G.P.A. No math course number below Math 109 is accepted.
Students should review the Academic Honesty policies as stated in the Academic Standards portion of this catalog. These policies apply to all Mercyhurst University students.
