The College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management offers baccalaureate degrees in information management; hotel, restaurant, and tourism management; interdisciplinary studies; retailing; and sport and entertainment management.
The College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management has a preprofessional and a professional division of student classification. For entrance into the preprofessional division, the college follows the general admission policies of the University. Entrance into the professional division requires the approval of the department and the successful completion of the requirements indicated under each departmental heading. It is the students responsibility to contact the department and complete the necessary application for admission to the professional division.
In addition to the academic admission requirements of the University and of the College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management for admission to the professional division, an enrollment limit may be imposed by various departments. Such a limit would become necessary if enrollment levels exceed available department staffing and facility resources. In the event of an enrollment limit, admission to a department may take into account the applicants grade point average and other factors, which may include the applicants potential for success in that major.
The requirements for continuing scholastic eligibility are determined by the statement on academic standing covering suspension, probation, and graduation as stated in the University bulletin. Acceptance to the professional division is based upon courses completed, GPA, class rank, and where applicable, practicum performance. Progression requirements for individual departments are specified under each department heading.
To be eligible for graduation, students in the College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management must meet all course requirements, be in good standing, and meet any specific departmental requirements as well as University requirements. A minimum grade of C is required in English 101, 102, and all departmental courses used to satisfy major or professional area requirements. Individual departments may stipulate additional courses that require a minimum grade in order to be applied toward that major.
Any additional departmental requirements are indicated under each departmental heading.
When students enroll in a particular course, they obligate themselves for all of the work which may be assigned. Absences, excused or not, do not absolve students of this responsibility. Punctual and regular attendance is vital to the discharge of this obligation.
Faculty members will notify students specifically of the attendance policy which they intend to follow in each class. An instructor may impose a grade penalty for absence in excess of 10 percent of regularly scheduled class meetings.
