An undergraduate student will be placed on Academic Probation if, during any academic term, the overall GPA or the cumulative CSUSM GPA falls below 2.0 (C average). The student shall be advised of probation status promptly by email communication from the Office of the Registrar.
Once a student is disqualified, s/he may petition to be reinstated to the University. Reinstatement must be based upon evidence that the causes of previous low achievement have been removed. Reinstatement will be approved only if the student is able to provide compelling evidence of her/his ability to complete the degree. Petitions are reviewed by the Office of the Dean of the college in which the student's major is housed.
