Rules and Regulations Undergraduate Program

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​All OSB students must be familiar with, observe and adhere to the University Student Code of Conduct and OSB's Honor Code.

OSB Rules and Regulations

The university regulations apply to the following:

  • Placement on academic probation

Students who are attending 4 courses including BUSS 211 (i.e. with a load of 11 credits) are subject to probation regulations. If a student on probation drops the whole semester, then that semester is not counted for continued probation purposes

  • Removal of academic probation
  • Dismissal
  • Readmission

T ansfer credits are considered after evaluation of a student's coursework. The student must have achieved a grade equivalent to the AUB average of 77 in each of the courses for which transfer of credits may be granted. Regulations on readmission also apply to students who are dropped from other AUB faculties and apply for admission to OSB. Readmission of students dropped from the School by the Administrative Committee requires the approval of that Committee, whereas readmission of students dropped from other AUB Faculties requires the approval of the OSB Admissions Committee.

  • Failing and Repeating courses

A student who at the end of the senior year fails to fulfill the graduation requirements pertaining to cumulative grade averages and is not dismissed must repeat the courses with low grades, in order to raise the overall average to the required minimum.

  • Cross-registration

A business student who wants to register for a course at another recognized institution must meet all requirements for cross-registration. Please refer to the General University Academic Information section of the AUB Undergraduate Academic Catalogue for further information.
