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.

Exception for Spring 2020

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, SDSU students will not be academically disqualified after the Spring 2020 semester regardless of term, SDSU, or cumulative grade point averages.
