Classified Status (Graduate Policy)

To be granted classified status, students must have a 3.0 GPA for all work taken as a conditionally classified student and in any courses required by the program for admission to its program. Once the requirements for classified status have been met, it is the responsibility of the students to notify their graduate coordinator. The graduate coordinator will then submit the Classification form to the Office of Graduate Studies.

To meet the minimum requirements for classified status, the student must fulfill the following (individual programs may have more stringent standards):

  1. A 3.0 GPA or higher in all work taken after completion of a bachelor’s degree.
  2. Hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.
  3. Pass the Upper Division Writing Proficiency Exam (UDWPE) or equivalent. Students who have fulfilled the Upper Division Writing Exam at another CSU campus may submit official notification of a passing score.

Note: Individual departments or programs may have additional requirements. Refer to their websites for information.
