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.


Academic Appeals

You may petition for exception to academic policy. Typically, exception requests involve issues such as:

  • Record errors
  • General Education substitutions or waivers
  • Reinstatement
  • Exceptions to the repeat/delete policy

To file an appeal, you must obtain the Petition for Exception to Academic Policy form from the Enrollment Services website, the Office of Enrollment Services, Brotman Hall Room 101, or the University Center for Undergraduate Advising, located in the Horn Center, Room 103. Petitions must be filed with the Office of Enrollment Services, BH-101.  The written appeal will be directed to the University Academic Appeal Committee which meets approximately every two weeks throughout the calendar year. You will be notified by mail regarding the appeal outcome.
