Academic Probation

What is Academic Probation?

An undergraduate student is subject to academic probation if at any time, the overall grade point average (GPA), which is all college coursework attempted at any institution, or the CSUDH GPA falls below 2.0. A student shall be removed from academic probation when the overall GPA and the CSUDH GPA are at 2.0 or higher.

STEPS Academic Probation Hold

Students on academic probation will have a STEPS Academic Probation hold placed on their account. The STEPS hold prevents a student from registering for future terms. In order to have the hold removed, students must complete either a STEPS Academic Probation Workshop or a STEPS Follow-Up, depending on how many semesters the student has been on probation. The workshops include helpful information about university policies and procedures, understanding academic probation, the reasons why students encounter academic problems, and how to receive help and support from campus services and offices. Please visit the University Advisement for more information on academic probation and disqualification.

Student Success Plan

The College of Health, Human Services, and Nursing is committed to student success. Students who are on academic probation are strongly encouraged to meet with their major advisor to develop a Student Success Plan. A student success plan allows to identify the factors that contributed to your academic standing, develop goals to improve your academic standing, and provide you with resources and recommendations. We will work collaboratively to develop a roadmap to success. The Student Success Plan does not replace attending the STEPS workshop or STEPS follow-up.
