In addition to the campus-wide grading system the Leeds School of Business enforces the following policies:
A minimum scholastic cumulative grade point average of 2.00 is required at the university, including 2.00 cumulative for all business courses. If either of these GPAs drops below 2.0 you will be placed on Academic Probation for one semester, and if they do not return above 2.0 after one semester you will be placed on Academic Suspension for one Academic year. For graduation you must have a 2.00 cumulative GPA, 2.00 cumulative Business GPA, and a 2.00 GPA in your area of emphasis courses. Certificates also have GPA requirements for completion; see the applicable certificate page for details.
Beginning Fall 2008, students entering Leeds are required to have a minimum grade of C- in all area of emphasis courses.
Students must complete 30 hours of business courses in residence on the Boulder campus after admission to the Leeds School of Business, including all 18 hours in the area of emphasis and the 9 hours in the area of application. Students must be in residence at the campus awarding the degree, and must be registered as a business degree student, during the term of graduation.
Final grades as reported by instructors are considered permanent and final. Grade changes will be considered only in cases of documented clerical errors and must be approved by the instructor and the associate dean of the Leeds School of Business.
Students in the Leeds School of Business may not use courses taken on a pass/fail basis to satisfy required business, required non-business, or elective business courses, with the exception of an approved academic internship.
The only incomplete grade given in the college is I. An I grade is given only when documented circumstances clearly beyond the student's control prevent the student from completing the course.
Failed courses may be repeated, but the F will be included in the GPA.
As of Fall 2010, Course Repetition is no longer an option. All repeat courses will count in the GPA but will only be counted once towards degree progress.
Students may withdraw any time before the beginning of the final examination period.
The following shall be the official policy of the academic units of the Leeds School, unless an academic unit submits an alternative procedure to the Dean for approval. When a student believes that a grade has been improperly assigned, and discussions between the instructor and the student have not led to any resolution of the problem, then the student may pursue the following steps:
