First, avoid unnecessary use of global variables. Constants are ok.

Second first dimension of array parameter does not need value, the [] is fine and less restrictive.
In fact, how could the compiler know what value does the user give for n? It can not.
How could it generate void func( int arr[X][Y] ) if it does not know the X?
On the other hand void func( int arr[][Y], int X ) passes array of unknown size and the X.

 In function 'int main()':
30:33: error: cannot convert 'double (*)[3][6]' to 'int (*)[3][6]' for argument '4' to 'void inputData(int, std::string (*)[9], int (*)[2], int (*)[3][6])'

Note how variable courses_Numeric2 has type double [3][NUMBER_OF_COURSES][NUMBER_OF_SCORES] on line 25.
Argument 4 has type int [][NUMBER_OF_COURSES][NUMBER_OF_SCORES]
