Fashion Merchandising Program Policies
Students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.00 in the major, and the lowest acceptable grade is a “C-“ in all major and secondary courses except in the art course requirement where the lowest acceptable grade is a "C". When a grade below “C-“ (or a"C" for the art course) is earned in a required course, the student must repeat that course. No student will be allowed to advance to the next course without earning a grade of “C-“ (or "C" for art) or better in the prerequisite course(s).
A course may be repeated once without special permission. Fashion merchandising majors must apply in writing to the department chair of business administration requesting permission to repeat a course for a second time. Those who do not successfully complete a major course with a grade of “C-” (or "C" for the art) or better after a third attempt will not be allowed to continue in the fashion merchandising program.
