Planning to take BUSM 4200 or 4300 in Summer term? Apply for Upper Division

Deadline to apply for Upper Division: February 3rd, 2020

Upper Division BBA students register one day before Lower Division BBA students. BUSM 4200 and 4300 always fill up fast, and in Summer term seats are especially limited. To give yourself the best chance of getting a seat in these courses, you should apply for Upper Division status as soon as you're eligible. 

How to apply for Upper Division: 

BBA Lower Division (Term L) students who are eligible to progress to Upper Division (Term U) must complete the Upper Division Progression Request form and submit it to business@langara.ca.

The deadline to submit this form to take effect for the Summer 2020 registration period is February 3, 2020. If you have already submitted the request form this term, you do not need to resubmit it.

In order to progress to Upper Division, students must:

  1. have completed a minimum of 60 credits;
  2. have a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.33;
  3. have completed all bridging courses for their concentration with a "C" grade or higher.

Courses that are not complete (in progress) cannot be used to meet the above requirements. If you need assistance or have questions, please email the LSM Advising team at business@langara.ca or check our drop-in advising schedule.

Deadline to apply for Upper Division for Summer 2020 registration: Monday, February 3rd, 2020

Switching business programs?

    • Your full name;
    • Langara ID;
    • Reason for your request.

The deadline to submit this request for the Spring 2020 term is February 3rd, 2020.

Students who change programs/concentrations are required to meet all curriculum requirements in place the semester the change takes effect. Please contact business@langara.ca if you have any questions.

BBA Program Maintenance of Standing

BBA Program students who have completed 60 or more credits must maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.33 to continue in the third and the fourth years of the BBA. 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 Summer 2020 term is February 3rd, 2020. 

Important Notes:
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.
