Students who have been placed on academic probation and do not raise their CSULB cumulative GPA (all courses at CSULB) and their overall cumulative GPA (all transferable college courses, including CSULB work) to 2.0 are subject to disqualification.
Students are subject to academic disqualification at the end of the first semester on academic probation if they have GPAs below the four (4) minimum cumulative (CUM) GPAs as follows:
|Units Completed||Cumulative GPA|
|Freshman (fewer than 30 units completed)||1.5 GPA|
|Sophomore (30 - 59 units completed||1.7 GPA|
|Junior (60 - 89 units completed)||1.85 GPA|
|Senior (90 + units completed)||1.95 GPA|
Students whose CSULB and overall GPAs are higher than those listed above, but below 2.0, may earn a second semester on academic probation before academic disqualification takes place.
Students whose CSULB and overall GPAs are still below 2.0 after two semesters on probation are subject to academic disqualification.
Detailed information on academic standing, including Academic Probation, Disqualification, and Reinstatement can be found by visiting Enrollment Services.
Undergraduate students who have made academic progress and believe that there were extenuating circumstances that led to their academic disqualification may file an Academic Appeal of Disqualification to request an extension of their academic probation for an additional semester. The student must file the Academic Appeal of Disqualification form and supporting documentation immediately following notification by Enrollment Services of the student's disqualification.
Once disqualified, students will be considered eligible for reinstatement if they have:
Disqualified students are strongly encouraged to attend a Reinstatement Workshop at UCUA. In these two-hour workshops, UCUA advisors assist students in developing a plan to work toward applying for reinstatement to the University. Find out how to register.
