Students who have been placed on academic probation and do not raise their CSULB cumulative GPA (all courses at CSULB) and their overall cumulative GPA (all transferable college courses, including CSULB work) to 2.0 are subject to disqualification after one-two semesters on academic probation.
Students are subject to academic disqualification at the end of the first semester on academic probation if they have GPAs below the four (4) minimum cumulative (CUM) GPAs as follows:
|Units Completed||Cumulative GPA|
|Freshman (fewer than 30 units completed)||1.5 GPA|
|Sophomore (30 - 59 units completed||1.7 GPA|
|Junior (60 - 89 units completed)||1.85 GPA|
|Senior (90 + units completed)||1.95 GPA|
Students whose CSULB and overall GPAs are higher than those listed above, but below 2.0, may earn a second semester on academic probation before academic disqualification takes place.
Students whose CSULB and overall GPAs are still below 2.0 after two semesters on probation are subject to academic disqualification.
Detailed information on academic standing, including Academic Probation, Disqualification, and Reinstatement can be found on the Enrollment Services’ website.
