Probation and Remediation

Academic Probation

An undergraduate student is subject to academic probation if at any time, the cumulative grade point average in all college work attempted or the cumulative CSUDH grade point average falls below 2.0.  A student shall be removed from academic probation when the cumulative grade point average in all college work attempted and the CSUDH grade point average are 2.0 or higher.


The California State University requires each entering undergraduate, except those who qualify for an exemption, take the CSU English Placement Test (EPT) and the CSU Entry Level Math (ELM) examination prior to enrollment.  These placement tests are not a condition for admission to the CSU, but they are a condition of enrollment.  These examinations are designed to identify entering students who may need additional support in acquiring college entry-level English and mathematics skills necessary to succeed in CSU baccalaureate-level courses.  Undergraduate students who do not demonstrate college-level skills both in English and in mathematics will be placed in appropriate remedial programs and activities during the first term of their enrollment.

Students placed in remedial programs in either English or mathematics must complete all remediation in their first year of enrollment.  Failure to complete remediation by the end of the first year may result in denial of enrollment for future terms.
