If you are missing requirements for this program, you may be eligible to apply for the NorQuest Bridging to Post Secondary program.

Practicum/Work Experience Requirements

To be eligible for BUSN 1184, students must successfully complete all other Administrative Professional certificate courses.

International students: If you choose to take BUSN 1184 or CBLE 1000 as an elective, you will be required to obtain a co-op work permit. Apply for your co-op work permit at least four months before your elective course begins.

Progression

Students must attain a pass grade in each course to progress through the program.

If you are a full-time student in the program and you fail two courses in a term, you will be placed on contractual departmental probation for the following term. Failure to meet the probation requirements may result in forced withdrawal from the full-time program for one full term. Readmission to the program will be subject to departmental review.

If you are a full-time student in the program and you fail three or more courses in any one term, you will be required to withdraw for one full term from the full-time program. Readmission to the program will be subject to departmental review.

To qualify for graduation, students must pass all courses and achieve a minimum 2.0 grade point average. The program must be completed within five years of your start date.
