Readmitted Under Academic Performance Agreement (Undergraduate Policy)

Students who have been academically disqualified, but who are readmitted to the University under terms of academic notice, are classified as readmitted under an Academic Performance Agreement (APA). Students who are readmitted under an APA have registration holds and are not able to register for classes until they have received advisement. During advisement, the student and advisor examine the student’s progress toward improving academic status and set goals for the next semester. Declared majors typically receive advisement from the SSC/EOP Satellite in their College. EOP Exploratory students receive advisement from the EOP Exploratory Advisement Coordinator. All other Exploratory students receive advisement from the Matador Advising Hub.

Students who are readmitted under APA can enroll in a maximum of 13 units in a semester or Summer term. To request additional units, students must complete the Extra Unit Authorization form and obtain the signature of their College associate dean, or for Exploratory majors the Associate Vice President of Undergraduate Studies.

Students in this status, whether they have one or more disqualifications, must fulfill all of the following requirements until they reach good standing:

  1. Earn a minimum 2.0 semester GPA.
  2. Enroll in classes each semester.
  3. Have in place a signed APA that details the academic progress that must be achieved to move the student toward completion of the baccalaureate degree within a designated time period.

Students who are readmitted under an APA, but who fail to maintain continuous enrollment in classes each semester or who fail to achieve a 2.0 semester GPA, revert back to disqualified status. They must reapply and be readmitted to the University as a previously disqualified student in order to be eligible to enroll in classes through the regular enrollment process. See Readmission of Previously Disqualified Students in this Catalog. Academic disqualification is a permanent notation in a student’s academic record and has serious consequences that can impact attainment of a baccalaureate degree. The consequences of academic disqualification depend upon whether it is the first, second, third or fourth disqualification that the student receives.
