Academic Status

Our advising staff is concerned about your academic success and would like to help you return to good academic standing. Please read the following to understand the process of Academic Probation.

What do these terms mean? 

Academic Probation

  • An undergraduate student is placed on academic probation if his or her GPA is less than a 2.0 for the term or cumulative GPA.

Subject to Disqualification

  • An undergraduate student is subject to disqualification if his or her GPA is less than a 1.5 for the term or cumulative GPA OR if he or she has been on academic probation for two consecutive terms without achieving a GPA of 2.0. Continued registration of an undergraduate who is subject to disqualification is at the discretion of the faculty of the student's college or its authorized agent (generally the provost/Office of the Provost).

How do I meet the terms of my probation?

  • You must bring your quarter and cumulative GPA up to a minimum of a 2.0.
  • You may not enroll in courses under the Pass/No Pass grading option during your probationary period. The deadline to change your grading option is Friday of Fourth week.
  • You should take no more than 12-14 units during your term of probation.
  • You should repeat sequential courses in which you received a "D" or an "F".

Failure to return to good standing in the future could lead to academic disqualification from the university.

Additional information about academic probation can be found at Back On Track at UCSD. If you have any questions or concerns please come in during walk-in hours, contact us via the Virtual Advising Center, or call 858-534-9001 to make an appointment (there are no same day appointments).
