Probation, Disqualification, Reinstatement, and Academic Appeals
What is Academic Probation?
Academic probation is when students receive deficient grade points below the 2.0 GPA in their CSULB GPA and/or their cumulative GPA. For more information regarding academic probation, visit the University Center for Undergraduate Advising.
What is Academic Disqualification?
Academic disqualification means dismissal from CSULB and is the result of not maintaining good academic standing. For more information regarding academic disqualification, see the University Center for Undergraduate Advising information for disqualified students.
Once a student is disqualified, s/he must reapply to the university using the Application for Reinstatement.
