Academic Standing for Graduate Students (Probation and Disqualification)

Probation and Disqualification

Students enrolled in a Degree Program will be placed on academic probation whenever their GPA falls below 3.0 for all units attempted. To be removed from probation, students must earn sufficient grade points in the following semester of enrollment to raise their GPA to 3.0 or above. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. (Please refer to Grading in the Regulations section of the Catalog to determine grade points assigned per unit value of course work.)

If a disqualified graduate student wishes to be considered for readmission to a Master’s Program, disqualification forms must be submitted for the semester immediately following disqualification notification. Disqualification materials will be emailed to students after final grades are posted. The materials are submitted through the Departmental Graduate Coordinator. Students who choose not to file readmission forms for the semester following disqualification will be required to submit a new University application and fee in order to enroll in any future semester. Similar provisions to those stated above apply to Post-Baccalaureate, Unclassified and Post-Baccalaureate and Credential students, except that the required maintenance GPAs are 2.50 and 2.75, respectively.
