All new first year and transfer business students with less than two semesters of college coursework will need to achieve a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA in all of their coursework at the completion of two full semesters to continue in their business major sophomore year in the PCSB.

Any business student who does not meet the minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA requirement at the end of the second semester of coursework will be changed to “undeclared” and will no longer be a business major, effective the summer before sophomore year.

Transfer students and first year students who enter Providence College during the spring term will also need to meet the minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA requirement to continue in the School of Business their sophomore year.

To be eligible for reevaluation, students must submit a petition to the School of Business. Submission of  a petition does not guarantee readmission.
