Scholastic Standing for Minors

Any one of the following conditions will result in the removal of a Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark program minor:

  • Cumulative grade-point average lower than 2.0
  • Two grades of D (1.0) or F (0.0) received in minor courses
  • Two grades of D (1.0) or F (0.0) received in the same minor course

Students whose minors have been removed can appeal to the Scholastic Standing Committee if there are extenuating circumstances that account for poor academic performance. This must be done, in writing, by the date indicated within the removal letter. The appeal must be written by the student. Presenting false or intentionally misleading information in the appeal may result in immediate dismissal of the appeal and/or judicial charges. The appeal should be no more than four (4) pages and must be received before the deadline date outlined in the removal letter.

The letter of appeal must include:

  1. Student's name, RUID number, current address, and Rutgers email address
  2. Circumstances that negatively affected the student's academic performance during the semester of the dismissal
  3. What was done to address these issues, or what is being done if these circumstances are still ongoing
  4. Any administrative contact made with Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark; Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; or any outside office(s) to address these issues, and the outcome of these efforts
  5. Appropriate supporting documentation

If students choose not to appeal or if the appeal is rejected, the minor removal will be final. Students will not be eligible to declare any additional Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark minor.
