If a student earns grades of two Cs, one D, or one F in courses that are part of his/her MBA program, the student will no longer be in good standing in the MBA program even if his/her cumulative GPA remains at or above 3.0. MBA students who are not in good standing will be subject to review and may be dismissed by the MBA committee. Students may not use more than two F600-level courses with C grades on their Advancement to Candidacy application. An A or B grade must be earned in F400-level courses.

Students with no prior course work in business subjects may be required to complete up to seven self-study modules prior to beginning courses. Contact the SOM MBA program for more information. These are not UAF courses and will not count toward the 30 required program credits.
