To remain in good standing a student working towards a baccalaureate degree must maintain a SF STATE CUM GPA and COMBINED CUM GPA of 2.0 (C) or better. Academic probation/subject to disqualification and disqualification actions are taken only at the close of each regular semester.


Probation/Subject to Disqualification

Undergraduate students will be placed on probation/subject to disqualification status when the SF STATE CUM GPA or COMBINED CUM GPA is below a 2.0 (C) after the first semester on academic probation. The Registrar’s Office will notify students by email if Mandatory Advising is required.


Subject to Disqualification

Undergraduate students will be placed on continued probation/subject to disqualification after the second semester on academic probation when the SF STATE CUM GPA or COMBINED CUM GPA fall within the chart below. Students will have a third semester to bring up both SF STATE CUM GPA and COMBINED CUM GPAs to a 2.0 (C) when on subject to disqualification status. The Registrar’s Office will notify students by email if Mandatory Advising is required.
