Academic Disqualification

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.

Academic Appeal of Disqualification

Undergraduate students who are academically disqualified following the Fall 2018 semester may file an appeal asking to extend their time on academic probation for an additional semester. The Academic Appeal of Disqualification will be posted in mid-December 2018.


Reinstatement Workshops


Once disqualified, students will be considered eligible for reinstatement if they have:

  • Remained out of CSULB for one (1) regular semester
  • Raised their grade point deficiency by one half
  • Raised their GPA
  • Made progress toward their degree

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.
