Academic Probation & DISQUALIFICATION

Academic Probation Alert

Students whose cumulative GPA meets the minimum standard for academic good standing, but whose term GPA for any one (1) semester falls below 2.00, are placed on alert status and limited to 13 units maximum during the probation alert period (a total of nine (9) during the summer). While not technically on academic probation, these students are under the supervision of their advisor.

 

Academic Probation

Students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.00 are placed on Academic Probation and limited to 12-15 units maximum during the probation period (a total of nine (9) during the summer). Student athletes are not eligible to play their sport while on academic probation.

 

Academic Disqualification

Students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.00 for two (2) consecutive regular semesters or whose term GPA falls below 2.00 for three (3) consecutive semesters will be disqualified from continuing at the University at the end of that second semester.

To be considered for readmission, students who are disqualified must:

  • spend at least one regular semester away from the University (summer is not considered a regular semester);

  • take 12 pre-approved units at another institution;

  • present official transcripts that demonstrate a university cumulative GPA of 2.00 or above;

  • meet with the Dean of Admissions and complete an application for readmission.

If readmitted, such students would be placed on Academic Probation and limited to 12-15 units in their first semester back to allow deep concentration on a lighter class schedule.

 

Students being readmitted to the University after a disqualification or a voluntary withdrawal while on probation or probation alert will be readmitted under probation regardless of their cumulative GPA in order to allow for monitoring of the student’s progress.
