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.
The Strategies Towards Educational Progress & Success (STEPS) workshop is a university-wide academic probation intervention program designed for undergraduate students who are on academic probation. The mission of the STEPS academic probation intervention workshops is to encourage and support students' persistence in and graduation from CSUDH by offering STEPS workshops throughout the fall and spring semesters. 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.
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.
Information regarding upcoming STEPS Workshops is emailed to students on academic probation. Students are encouraged to check ToroMail regularly.
