Academic Disqualification

What is Academic Disqualification?

After having been on academic probation, a student is academically disqualified if their CSUCI and/or cumulative GPA falls bellow the following:

  • Freshman (29 units or less)- 1.50
  • Sophomore (30-59 units)- 1.70
  • Junior (60-89 units)- 1.85
  • Senior (90+ units)- 1.95

Advising has created supplemental information regarding this policy.  For specific details refer to the Academic Appeals website.
