Academic Regulations

In addition to the general policies and regulations set out in Policies and Regulations, the academic regulations outlined in this section apply to the Faculty of Management.

Dean's Honour Roll

Student transcripts will receive the notation "Dean's Honour Roll" if an overall average of 80% or better is achieved in a program of 27 credits or more in any Winter Session. Exceptions are made for Co-op or Exchange students, who require at least 15 credits in a non-Co-op or non-Exchange term for this calculation. To qualify, students must pass all courses. Only courses taken at UBC will be used in this calculation.

Degree with Honours

The words "With Honours" will be placed on the transcript of record and the degree parchment of a student graduating with the B.Mgt. where the student’s average is 80% or better on all 200-level and higher courses taken while registered in the B.Mgt program. Only courses taken at UBC will be used in this calculation.

Academic Standing

Academic Probation

Academic Probation will be assigned at the end of the Winter Session (April) based on performance in that session (Sept-April) and will consider all courses taken in the session. A student will be placed on Academic Probation, while not falling under the provisions for Failed Standing below, if the student:

  • earned a sessional cumulative average of 50% to less than 60%; or
  • passed less than 60% of the credits

A student placed on Academic Probation at the end of the Winter Session will normally be allowed to register in a maximum of 9 credits per term in the following Winter Session. This credit restriction may be waived at the discretion of the Faculty. Upon request by the student to the Faculty, the Academic Probation credit restriction might be restored if, in the next Winter Session, each Term 1 course grade is 60% or higher.

The credit restriction will only be enforced if the student is notified before the subsequent Winter Session begins.

Failed Standing

Failed Standing will be assigned at the end of the Winter Session (April) based on performance in that session (Sept-April). The evaluation will consider all courses taken in the session. Failed standing will be assigned to a student who has:

  • a sessional cumulative average of less than 50%.

A student placed on Failed Standing for the first time will normally be required to discontinue studies in the Faculty for a period of one academic year (12 months) prior to applying for readmission. Affected students will be issued a letter from the Faculty outlining a decision and next steps. It is recommended that students who consider applying for readmission the following year complete further study at another recognized post-secondary institution during the year away. Students are strongly advised to consult the Faculty prior to further academic study.

Students who are readmitted after being required to discontinue study in the Faculty following a failed year will receive credit toward the B.Mgt. only for those university transferable courses in that year away in which they obtained a grade of at least 60%.

A student who already has a Failed Standing on their academic record will be required to withdraw from the University and may only be readmitted under the Advancement Regulations. Readmission to the Faculty of Management after a second failed year is normally not granted.

Courses taken in the Summer Session are not taken into consideration for assigning Failed Standing.
