Guidelines for Grading and Academic Standing
- The Krannert Faculty follows the +/- grading policy established by the University and strongly recommends that teachers in the master’s programs assign grades using pluses and minuses.
- Grading will be determined by the instructor in each designated course. No set curve will be established. Grading expectations should be clearly laid out in the course syllabus.
- Students that earn an “F” grade in a course are dismissed from the program. Dismissed students have the opportunity to submit a petition (asking for readmission to the program) addressed to the Academic Director.
- In order to be able to graduate, a student must obtain at least a 3.0 Cumulative GPA at the time of graduation. Students who fall below a 3.0 have the opportunity to submit a petition to the MS Economics Academic Director asking for graduation approval.
- Students who are in the top 5% of their graduating class will be designated Krannert Scholars.
- Students who are in the top 20% of their graduating class will be invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma, the national business honor society.
