If, while on probation, your semester grade point average falls below 2.00, you will be "disqualified." If you have registered for the next semester, you will be disenrolled from your classes. Being disqualified means you are no longer a student here at SDSU.
If you are disqualified, you cannot enroll in regular SDSU classes for a minimum of two regular semesters (fall and spring). If you want to return to SDSU after a year, you will need to reapply to the University and be subject to the prevailing policy and admission standards in force at the time of your application.
If, while continued on probation, your semester grade point average falls below 2.85, you will be subject to disqualification. Also, if at the end of the second semester of probation, your grade point average for all graduate level work attempted or all graduate level work attempted at San Diego State University is not at least 2.85, you will be disqualified from further attendance at the University. If you have registered for the next semester, you will be disenrolled from your classes.
If you are disqualified, you cannot enroll in SDSU classes for one full semester. If you want to return to SDSU after one semester, you will need to file an application for readmission. Once that application is on file, a Petition for Reinstatement will be required for review. Readmission to the University is NOT automatic. Each applicant will be considered on an individual basis by the graduate adviser.
If you believe that the grade assigned for a course is incorrect, you should attempt to resolve the matter informally with the instructor. This should be addressed during the semester following the semester the questioned grade was received. If twelve or more months have elapsed since the grade was issued, no grade change will be made. Additionally, once you have graduated, your record is sealed. No changes will be made to the work completed for that degree.
