Requirements for Graduation:
To be eligible for graduation, students majoring in International Business must complete a minimum of 121 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.
The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations, Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation. Transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation.
Students majoring in International Business must achieve a 2.0 or higher in each General Business Component course and a 2.0 average in the International Business component courses. In addition, students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course. (Refer to the course description for specific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation. Students must also earn a grade of 2.0 or higher in the senior capstone course, BUS 494 . This may allow for a second major or a minor which must be completed with a cumulative 2.0 average. A total of 48 credits (including FYS, Foundations, Disciplinary Perspectives, and Constellation courses) must be taken outside of the Graham School of Business. Students who are waived from FYS must complete 3 credits of non-business coursework. Students graduating with a declared concentration in International Business may not simultaneously declare a minor in Busines Administration or International Business.
