You will be placed on academic probation if your cumulative grade point average in all college work attempted, or all work at SDSU, falls below a 2.00. Probation is calculated at the end of each semester after deductions have been made for approved course repeats and after year-old Incomplete grades have been included in your GPA as grades of "F."
Summer courses are included in the SDSU grade point average. Open University courses taken spring 1998 and after are also counted in the SDSU GPA. Open University courses taken prior to spring 1998 as well as all extension courses are considered transfer credit and do not count in the SDSU grade point average.
While on probation, you must maintain a term grade point average of 2.00. If you fall below a 2.00 in any term after going on probation, you will be disqualified. You are allowed to continue on probation (which means maintaining a GPA of at least 2.00 each semester) for a maximum of three semesters.
In addition, your campus GPA must also be at least a 2.00 at the end of the maximum 3 semesters, or you will be disqualified. You will be removed from academic probation when you have raised your grade point average to 2.00 or higher in all college work attempted and in all work attempted at SDSU.
You will be placed on academic probation at the end of a semester in which your cumulative graduate grade point average falls below 2.85. Probation is calculated at the end of each semester after year-old Incomplete grades have been added into the GPA as grades of "F."
Once on probation, you must maintain a 2.85 term grade point average or you will be subject to disqualification. Provided you earn a 2.85 grade point average or better in San Diego State University work during the first semester while on academic probation, you will be continued on academic probation for a second semester. Academic probation will be removed when you attain a 2.85 grade point average or better in all graduate level work attempted, and in all work attempted at San Diego State University.
Second Baccalaureate Programs
If you are in an approved Second Baccalaureate program, you will be placed on probation once your GPA falls below a 2.00. Academic status will be calculated the same as that of an undergraduate student.
Exception for Spring 2020
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, SDSU students will not be placed on academic probation after the spring 2020 semester regardless of term, SDSU, or cumulative grade point averages. Students who are currently on probation will not have the spring 2020 semester counted toward the maximum semesters of probation.
