ACADEMIC STANDARDS

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Good Standing
To remain in good standing a student working toward a baccalaureate degree must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 (C) or better.

Academic probation and disqualification actions are taken only at the close of each regular semester. Both quality of performance and progress toward the chosen objective are considered in determining a student's eligibility to remain in the university.

Probation
Undergraduate students may be placed on probation when the cumulative GPA in all college work attempted or in all work at San Francisco State University falls below 2.0 (C).

Disqualification
Undergraduate students on probation are subject to disqualification when:

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Only the grades of A, A, B+, B, B, C+, C, and CR are acceptable in courses on the Graduate Approved Program for the master's degree. Classified students whose performance, progress, or conduct in a graduate program is judged by appropriate university authorities to be unsatisfactory may be required to withdraw from the program in question.

Graduate Classified, Graduate Conditionally Classified, and Post-Baccalaureate Classified
Good Standing
Maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B) or above in any term.

Probation
May be subject to probation when cumulative grade point average falls below 3.0 (B) in any term.

Disqualification
May be subject to disqualification from the graduate degree and/or advanced credential program and from further enrollment in the university if, during the semester of probation, there is a failure to achieve the minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B).

Teaching Credential and Post-Baccalaureate Unclassified
Good Standing
Maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (C+) or above each term.

Probation
May be subject to probation when cumulative grade point average falls below 2.5 (C+) in a particular term.

Disqualification
May be subject to disqualification if, during the semester of probation, there is a failure to achieve the minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (C+).

DECLASSIFICATION FROM DEGREE PROGRAM
A student may be declassified (dropped) from a graduate program for a range of reasons including, but not restricted to, not meeting conditions as outlined in the section entitled "Administrative/Academic Probation and Disqualification;" unprofessional conduct; professional judgment of the faculty of the department that the student is incapable of completing degree requirements; failure to meet grade requirements to maintain good standing in the program and/or the university. The declassification request may be initiated by the major department or by the student. Requests are submitted to the dean of the Graduate Division for final action and official notification to the student and the Registrar's Office. A declassified student may request of the dean of the Graduate Division to be permitted to continue enrollment as an unclassified graduate student, but only if the cumulative post-baccalaureate grade point average in all work taken at this university is above the 2.5 level. Such students will not be permitted to enroll in courses in the program from which they were declassified unless explicit approval is obtained from the department chair of the program involved. If the grade point average is below 2.5, the student will be subject to being disqualified from further enrollment in the university.
