PROBATION

Undergraduate Probation
Check out the Academic Probation Tutorial

You will be placed on academic probation when your cumulative grade point average in all college work attempted, or all work at SDSU, falls below a 2.00. Probation is calculated at the end of each semester after deductions have been made for approved course repeats and after year-old Incomplete grades have been included in your GPA as grades of "F."

Summer courses are included in the SDSU grade point average. Open University courses taken spring 1998 and after are also counted in the SDSU GPA. Open University courses taken prior to spring 1998 as well as all extension courses are considered transfer credit and do not count in the SDSU grade point average.

Once on probation, you must maintain a term grade point average of 2.00. If you fall below a 2.00 in any term after going on probation, you will be disqualified. You are allowed to continue on probation (which means maintaining a GPA of at least 2.00 each semester) for a maximum of three semesters.

In addition, your campus GPA must also be at least a 2.00 at the end of the maximum 3 semesters, or you will be disqualified. You will be removed from academic probation when you have raised your grade point average to 2.00 or higher in all college work attempted and in all work attempted at SDSU.

Graduate Probation

You will be placed on academic probation at the end of a semester in which your cumulative graduate grade point average falls below 2.85. Probation is calculated at the end of each semester after year-old Incomplete grades have been added into the GPA as grades of "F."

Once on probation, you must maintain a 2.85 term grade point average or you will be subject to disqualification. Provided you earn a 2.85 grade point average or better in San Diego State University work during the first semester while on academic probation, you will be continued on academic probation for a second semester. Academic probation will be removed when you attain a 2.85 grade point average or better in all graduate level work attempted, and in all work attempted at San Diego State University.

If you are in an approved Second Baccalaureate program, you will be placed on probation once your GPA falls below a 2.00. Academic status will be calculated the same as that for an undergraduate senior (90+ units completed).
