The new Academic Calendar for 2020/21 is now live with new courses, requirements and policies introduced. These policies have the following impact on our students:
Business 1 Students
We removed the requirement for Business 1 students to complete their required courses and a 5.0 GPA on first attempts only. This means, students can repeat or upgrade courses to meet the requirements to progress to Level II. Please see the McMaster Repeat Policy.
If you are below the required 5.0 at the end of this term, or have not completed all requirements, you may complete coursework over the Spring/Summer to complete your requirements and/or improve your grades. You will need to apply to the Student Experience Office using firstname.lastname@example.org once you have completed the new work and you will be reviewed in August for progression to the Honours Commerce Program.
As a reminder, to be considered for entry into the Honours Commerce Program, a Business I student must have met all of the following:
- Achieved a GPA of at least 5.0 on a minimum of 24 units of course work for Business I including all required courses of the Business I program. Pass/No Credit grades are not included in your GPA.
- Successfully completed all Business I required courses. No more than a single Business I required course can be outstanding for students with a GPA of at least 5.0 on a minimum of 24 units of course work for Business I.
- Completed all required units of Business I course work and successfully completed enough units of elective course work where the total of successful units of course work equals 24 units.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
