An undergraduate student academic probation is subject to disqualification if the CSUDH and/or overall GPA(s) fall below the four minimum GPAs below:

Freshmen (0 - 29 units completed) with a CSUDH or overall GPA below 1.5
Sophomores (30 - 59 units completed) with a CSUDH or overall GPA below 1.7
Juniors (60 - 89 units completed) with a CSUDH or overall GPA below 1.85
Seniors (90+ units completed) with a CSUDH or overall GPA below 1.95

Students who are not on probation may be disqualified at the end of any term in which the CSUDH and/or overall GPA(s) fall below 1.0.

Students whose CSUDH and overall GPAs are above their class level minimum, but below 2.0, will remain on academic probation.

Academic Disqualification Petition

A student will be academically disqualified if her/his overall grade point average falls below the stated class level minimum. A student may petition the disqualification decision only one time by submitting the following documents:

  1. Petition for Exception form [PDF] ($10 fee). Student may explain and include documentation of what is perceived to be the main causes of the academic difficulties and information regarding any extenuating circumstances affecting academic performance.
  2. Verified plan (found within the Academic Disqualification Advisement form [PDF], signed by an advisor from the University Advisement Center) which demonstrates that the student will increase her/his grade point average to 2.0 or higher within one academic year when achieving a C or higher in all projected classes
  3. Verification of enrollment in the projected classes for the next summer and fall semesters (fall semester is sufficient if student's plan does not include summer courses)
