Carson College of Business policy on business GPA and decertification

You are responsible for submitting your grades as soon as you receive them to the WSU Admissions Office to ensure your consideration for this application pool. If you are currently completing a course at another institution you must have an official transcript sent to WSU Admissions Office as soon as grades are posted.

To assure that all certified majors in business meet the required 2.5 business GPA to graduate, all currently certified business majors must maintain a 2.5 business GPA or better each semester until they graduate. Any certified business major who falls below a business GPA of 2.5 for one semester will be on academic probation with the College of Business. If the student falls below the required 2.5 business GPA for a second semester, the CB will be forced to decertify the student as stated in the WSU Catalog under the University Decertification Academic Policy.
