Students unable to attain this minimum will be removed from the BBA program and switched to an Arts and Science open enrollment program. Once a student is able to raise their CGPA to the minimum 2.33, they can at that point email business@langara.ca to request reinstatement for the following semester. The deadline to submit reinstatement requests to take effect for Fall 2020 term is TBD.

A student who is reinstated into the BBA program after removal for below maintenance of standing requirements or suspension, must meet the program/curriculum requirements in effect the term they resume their studies.

Students must achieve a minimum CGPA of 2.33 and a minimum 'C' grade in all core business-related third- and fourth-year courses (BCAP, BUSM, FMGT, INTB, or MARK courses numbered 3xxx or 4xxx) in order to graduate.
