Disqualification

Undergraduate Disqualification

If, while on probation, your semester grade point average falls below 2.0 or you do not have a 2.0 grade point average in all work attempted at SDSU after your third semester on probation, you will be disqualified. If you have registered for the next semester, you will be disenrolled from your classes.

If you are disqualified, you are no longer a student at SDSU and you cannot enroll in SDSU classes, or classes through the SDSU College of Extended Studies, for a minimum of one year. If you want to return to SDSU after a year, you will need to reapply to the University and be subject to the prevailing policy and admission standards in force at the time of your application.

Graduate Disqualification

If, while continued on probation, your semester grade point average falls below 2.85, you will be subject to disqualification. Also, if at the end of the second semester of probation, your grade point average for all graduate level work attempted or all graduate level work attempted at San Diego State University is not at least 2.85, you will be disqualified from further attendance at the University. If you have registered for the next semester, you will be disenrolled from your classes.

If you are disqualified, you cannot enroll in SDSU or classes through the SDSU College of Extended Studies for one full semester. If you want to return to SDSU after one semester, you will need to file an application for readmission. Once that application is on file, a Petition for Reinstatement will be required for review. Readmission to the University is NOT automatic. Each applicant will be considered on an individual basis by the graduate adviser with recommendation to the graduate dean.

Grade Changes

If you believe that the grade assigned for a course is incorrect, you should attempt to resolve the matter informally with the instructor. If the matter cannot be resolved informally, you may present the case to the appropriate campus entity. Requests to improve an earned grade assigned at the end of the semester by completing additional coursework are not considered. This should be addressed immediately after the grade is posted. If twelve or more months have elapsed since the grade was issued, no grade change will be made. Additionally, once you have graduated, your record is sealed. No changes will be made to the work completed for that degree.
