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 after one-two semesters on academic probation.
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 on the Enrollment Services’ website.
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.
The deadline for submitting the completed form and supporting documentation is 5:00 PM on Monday, January 11, 2016. Information regarding the Academic Appeal of Disqualification is also available at the University Center for Undergraduate Advising (Horn Center, Room 103).
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, academic advisors help students develop a plan enabling them to work toward reinstatement and return to the University. Find out how to register.
