McLaren School of Management Academic Regulations and Requirements - BSBA

In addition to the General Regulations stated in this catalog, the McLaren School of Management applies the following regulations to all students enrolling in undergraduate programs.


Students should refer to "Academic Probation" and "Academic Disqualification" in Academic Regulations for the provisions regarding Academic Probation and Disqualification with respect to undergraduate students.


The Dean's Honor Roll in each school or college is a list of students achieving high scholarship each semester.

To be eligible, a student must be enrolled full-time for 12 units or more of course work graded "A" through "F" and achieve a 3.5 grade point average for that semester.

In addition, the USF cumulative grade point average must be 3.5 or better. Students with a 3.7 or higher grade point average for two consecutive semesters are eligible for the Dean's Honor Roll irrespective of the cumulative grade point average.

Records indicating "I" (Incomplete) will make a student ineligible for the Dean's Honor Roll.


In addition to the University residency requirements, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) students must also complete at least 50 percent of the upper division business core courses in the McLaren School of Management, including the Senior Core capstone course, and at least 50 percent of the courses toward their declared major.


In addition to the University regulations, the following McLaren School of Management regulations also apply to undergraduate business majors and minors: 1) students must obtain prior written consent from the Assistant Dean (in CASA University Advising) before enrolling at another institution during any session; 2) a minimum grade of "C" (2.0) is required to receive transfer units for approved course; and 3) students must be in good academic standing to be approved to take courses at another university.

For courses taken prior to enrolling in the McLaren School of Management, a minimum grade of "C" is required to receive transfer units for any business foundation, core or major requirement.


Students in the McLaren School of Management are encouraged to consider the various Study Abroad options and programs offered in affiliation with USF (also refer to specific Study Abroad sections in this catalog). Business students requesting approval to participate in a study abroad program must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 overall; a minimum GPA of 2.75 within business; must be a Junior or first semester Senior during their study abroad; must have completed at least 24 units at USF (transfer students); and must complete their last semester in residence at USF. Students should work with their advisor and the Center for Global Education to review their degree requirements and their proposed Study Abroad program. For approved Study Abroad courses, a minimum grade of "C" is required to transfer the course for non-elective units.
