Specific Notes for Level 2

These are specific notes for students enrolling in Level II:

Refer to the Undergraduate Calendar for a list of Level II required courses.

If you only took 24 units in Level I, you must complete the 6 units of electives you missed before you can move on to Level III.

At the end of Level I, you must have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 5.0 (63%), on a minimum of 24 units of coursework for Business I (on first attempts only), and these must include all required courses of the Business I program.

The GPA requirement is strictly upheld. If your average is slightly below 5.0, you will not have the option of continuing on academic probation.

If you have failed a course, you may still be eligible to advance in the program if:

    • You have failed no more than one required course.
    • You have failed no more than 6 units overall.
    • You have a GPA of 5.0 or higher, with your failed courses included in the average.

If you are interested in the internship program, you must enroll in Commerce 2IN0. This course is mandatory for anyone who is hoping to participate in the program.

There is no grade requirement to register in Commerce 2IN0, however admission into internship will require a minimum cumulative GPA of 7.0 (70%) by the end of Summer in Level II.

Duplicate Course Registration

Students may not register and hold seats in the same course for both terms if it is a single term course. This prevents your fellow students from getting seats in preferred sections of required and elective courses.

If you do not successfully complete a course, and would like to repeat it, you may take the course again in a subsequent term as per McMaster’s Repeat Policy.
