It is expected that a student will not need more than 20 months (five semesters) to complete our lock-step MBA degree. Any student who exceeds the 20-month time limit for completing the degree will not be part of his or her original cohort.
Students accepted into our MBA program who do not attend classes for over one year must apply for readmission into the degree program at both the School of Graduate Studies and the College of Business administration level and begin a new planned program of study. Course credit over five years old generally will not be accepted in the program. Other previous coursework will be evaluated on the basis of its applicability to the new program of study. To remain a student in good standing, degree candidates must maintain a 3.0 GPA and receive no more than two grades of "C" in the program.
It is the policy of Clayton State University that every student own or have ready, on demand access to a notebook/laptop computer to use for academic assignments and communications. This will often, but not always, require taking the computer to class. For hardware and software specifications and additional details, go to the University's
To receive a Master of Business Administration graduate degree from Clayton State University, a student should usually complete all 33 semester hours of the program requirements at Clayton State University. All of these 33 hours must be completed after the student has been admitted to the degree program. Transfer of graduate credit is generally not accepted, although transfer credit from an AACSB accredited institution will be considered on an individual basis. A maximum of six (6) credit hours may be accepted into the MBA program.
Withdrawals are subject to approval by the Director of the MBA program. Students who simply stop attending classes without officially withdrawing will be assigned failing grades. Any student who desires to withdraw from the University should contact the MBA Program Director. Following an exit interview, the student will be issued a copy of the withdrawal form and the Program Director will process the paperwork with the necessary University offices.
