This message does not apply to part-time students.

At the end of level 1, you must have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 5.0 (63%), on a minimum of 24 units of coursework for Business 1, and these must include all required courses of the Business 1 program.

If you have failed a course, you may still be eligible to advance in the program if:

  • You have failed no more than one required course
  • You have failed no more than 6 units overall
  • You have a GPA of 5.0 or better, with your failed courses included in the average

You have the opportunity to repeat failed courses in order to qualify for Level 2. Please refer to the McMaster Repeat Policy. If you successfully complete a previously failed course, the most recent grade will be included in your GPA and the course will no longer be considered “failed” in your review to advance in the program.

You can find the requirements for moving through the levels of the Commerce program on the Undergraduate Commerce website.
