College of Business

General CB Policies

Statement of Conduct

The College of Business is a learning community committed to a set of core values based on integrity, respect, and responsibility that guide our interactions.           

Integrity: the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or professional standards.

  • Members of our community are expected to act with integrity and honesty. These qualities are essential in providing a basis for trust, and are at the foundation of what molds the character of business professionals.              

Respect: to show consideration or thoughtfulness in relation to others.       

  • Our community respects the right of all people to express their ideas, beliefs, and opinions. Our relationships are based on mutual respect for one another, and differences of opinion are discussed openly and civilly. These discussions will focus on the issues, rather than attacking either party, and are presented in a courteous manner. We are sensitive to the impacts of both our words and actions on others.              

Responsibility: the state, fact, or position of being accountable and responsible. 

  • We accept responsibility for our actions and the consequences resulting from them. We understand and expect those around us to hold us accountable for our dealings and behavior. We deliver on the commitments and promises we make to others.              

 

Code of Honor

As College of Business students we pledge to uphold these standards of professionalism and conduct ourselves in accordance with them. We will not lie, cheat, or steal, and will not tolerate those who do. Our behavior defines who we are and what we will become.

 

Academic Jeopardy Policy

The College of Business is committed to the success of its students. If a student that has been admitted to the College of Business is deemed to be in academic jeopardy, the College of Business may place restrictions on the student. A student is considered in academic jeopardy for the following reasons:

  • On academic warning or probation
  • Frequently withdraws from class
  • Repeating coursework to be successful
  • Has less that a 2.5 (2.499 and below) in any of the required GPAs for graduation.
    • CWU GPA
    • Collegiate GPA (CWU and all transfer coursework combined)
    • Major GPA
    • Upper-division coursework in the major GPA
    • Accounting majors: upper-division Accounting coursework GPA


The College of Business may do the following in response to an Academic Jeopardy situation:

  • Limit College of Business coursework in future quarters
  • Require academic advising with both faculty and/or professional advisors
  • Require academic success plans
  • Double majors or double specialization students may be limited to one major plan in the College of Business

If a student is unable to improve academically while receiving intensive advising and support or does not actively participate in required advising, the student may be subjected to the College of Business Separation Policy.

 

Separation Policy

If a student that has been admitted to the College of Business is placed on academic probation, suspension, received multiple academic warnings, has repeat academic course withdrawals, or whose academic performance is below the necessary grade point averages required to graduate, then the student’s admission into the College of Business may be rescinded. Once rescinded, the student will be denied readmission to the College of Business for one year following which a written petition for readmission must be presented at least 30 days prior to the start of the quarter in which readmission is desired. The decision to readmit will be based on meeting current admission standards, analysis of the entire academic record, as well as any other sources of information deemed appropriate. Readmission is not guaranteed.
