UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTSGood 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 STUDENTSOnly 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.
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).
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+).
than academic performance, approval must be obtained from the unit of the university which recommended the disqualification action. Students disqualified from another institution, including other CSU campuses, may not be admitted to San Francisco State unless it can be demonstrated that the cause of the disqualification has been eliminated (additional course work with good grades, etc.) and the student is otherwise eligible to return to the institution of disqualification. For additional information, consult the Index for readmission policies and procedures.
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALSAn undergraduate student who has questions or concerns about degree requirements or general university regulations should discuss them first with a major adviser. If students wish to review an issue or to appeal a decision, they should consult with the department or program chair and, if needed, the college dean. Should questions arise beyond this point with respect to where or to whom a specific appeal should be directed, the Dean of Undergraduate Studies may be consulted for advice. After all of the informal procedures for grievances and appeals have been exhausted, the Dean of Undergraduate Studies may refer unresolved issues to the University Counsel who may initiate formal grievance procedures.
A graduate student who has problems arising from evaluation, advancement to candidacy, degree require-ments, or general regulations should discuss them first with a graduate major adviser. If a student wishes to review a problem or to appeal a decision, she/he should then consult with the department chair, college graduate coordinator, and the college dean, in that order. Should questions arise beyond this point with respect to where or to whom a specific appeal should be directed, the Dean of the Graduate Division may be consulted for advice. After all of the informal procedures for grievances and appeals have been exhausted, the Dean of the Graduate Division may refer unresolved issues to the Office of the University Counsel who may initiate formal grievance procedures.
