In order to be considered for reinstatement to CSULB, a disqualified student must demonstrate progress toward the degree. This demonstration can be achieved by:
All classes considered for reinstatement in the student's petition must be applicable for degree credit and toward the student's General Education or major requirements.
Progress toward meeting the GPA requirement can be demonstrated by reducing the deficiency in grade-point average by one-half at CSULB or by making equivalent grades in courses taken at other regionally accredited academic institutions. Grades earned at other regionally accredited academic institutions will not reduce the deficiency in the CSULB grade-point deficiency. Grades earned elsewhere are only indicators of academic ability.
After reducing the deficiency in the CSULB grade-point average and/or demonstrating academic ability at other regionally accredited academic institutions, the student may petition the Academic Appeals Committee for reinstatement. The petition must present evidence that the student is likely to achieve a satisfactory grade-point average and to complete requirements for the degree in accordance with the Timely Graduation Policy. The Academic Appeals Committee will only consider the petition for reinstatement of students who have remained outside of the university for at least one regular (fall or spring) semester after their dismissal.
Petition forms are available through Enrollment Services and must be filed by November 1 for the spring semester or June 1 for the fall semester. Petitions received after that date will be returned to the student to be submitted for consideration for a future semester. (PS 09-06)

Summer Session: 6 units or two courses, as long as enrollment in these two courses does not exceed 7 units. Winter Session: 4 units.
