Maintenance Requirements

Continued Enrollment

Continued enrollment in the E. J. Ourso College of Business is dependent upon satisfying the following requirements:

  • Maintain a minimum LSU cumulative GPA of 2.0 on all LSU system course work.
  • Maintain a minimum 2.0 LSU business GPA.
  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress towards the completion of the degree.

College Probation

A student will be placed on college probation and will be required to meet with an academic advisor in the dean’s office for the following reasons: 

  • The student’s cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 at the end of any academic semester.
  • The student’s LSU GPA falls below a 2.0 at the end of any academic semester.
  • The student’s LSU business GPA falls below a 2.0 at the end of any academic semester.
  • The student fails to make satisfactory academic progress towards the completion of the degree.

A minimum 12-hour load is expected in the probationary semester. Students on college probation will have a college hold placed on their registration which will require them to schedule an appointment with a college academic advisor to register for classes for the next semester. The registration flag will be automatically removed after the student is taken off college probation. Students will be dropped from the college if they are not removed from college probation after one probationary semester.

  • Students placed on college probation and who fail to improve their GPA to the minimum maintenance standard after one probationary semester.
  • Minimum maintenance standards are a 2.0 cumulative GPA, a 2.0 LSU GPA, a 2.0 business GPA, and a 2.0 LSU business GPA.
  • Students placed on college probation for failure to make satisfactory academic progress and who fail to make satisfactory academic progress during the probationary semester.
