Jack Dicus Business Honors Program

Grade Policy and Procedures

Policy and Procedures for students whose KU Overall GPA falls below 3.5

If the KU Overall GPA of a member of the Jack Dicus Business Honors Program falls below 3.5 but is between 3.40 and 3.49, the student will be required to meet with the director of the honors program and will be placed on “probation” for the semester immediately following the semester when the GPA fell below 3.5. If the student is unable to bring the KU Overall GPA back to 3.5 during the “probation” semester, the student will be dropped from the honors program.

If the KU Overall GPA of a member of the honors program falls below 3.4, the student will be dropped immediately from the program.

Once a student has been dropped from the honors program, the student is not eligible to take honors courses in the KU School of Business. Students dropped from the business school honors program but who are in the University Honors Program continue to be eligible to take KU School of Business honors courses. However, students dropped from the program have the option to petition for re-entry once they raise their KU Overall GPA back to 3.5 and above. The petition should be addressed to the Director of the Jack Dicus Business Honors Program.

If a student’s KU Overall GPA falls below 3.5 in the semester of graduation from the School of Business, the student will be able to participate in graduation activities because grades are not posted until after the graduation ceremony. However, the student will not have graduated with the “Business Honors” designation.
