Top 3 for 29 Mar
1 – Summer and Fall Registration
Registration for summer 2016 courses started on 1 Mar. As a reminder, no core MSPM courses will be offered in summer semester, only electives. The MSPM program will offer two 1.5 electives in summer session I (begins 16 May):
You may view the Blackboard Collaborate Session for these two courses here.
The Decision Sciences Department also offers electives focused on business analytics, some of which are open to MSPM students. See the Feb 2 blog for more information.
Are you are uncertain on which courses to register in for Summer and Fall 2016? Schedule an advisement session with Agnes Socrates via www.meetme.so/gwmspm.
2 – Academic Probation
A student whose GPA falls below 3.0 at any point after completing 9 credit hours will be placed on probation. A notice from the program will be sent to your GWU email when this occurs. Students may earn grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, or F for any course. An F grade indicates failure in the course. Students who receive a grade of F are required to present cause to the program director explaining why continued study should be permitted. Grades of F remain a part of your permanent record and are calculated into your GPA. It is recommended that you review the terms of academic probation during mid-semester as a refresher. The University Bulletin provides details on the terms of academic probation at GWSB.
