What is Academic Notice?

When an undergraduate student’s cumulative GPA or CSUCI GPA falls below a 2.0, they are placed on Academic Notice. Students must complete an Academic Notice process so that they can be connected with campus resources to help them address the challenges they are experiencing.

14 Unit Limitation

  • Students in the academic notice process are limited to 14 units so that they can have a lighter load while they get back on track.

GPA Calculator

Understanding your Grade Point Average (GPA) is an important part of being a successful student. We have included an online GPA calculator. Log in to MyCI for personalized results. This will help you determine or estimate your GPA.

Common uses of the GPA Calculator are:

  • Calculating your semester GPA
  • Determining necessary grades to obtain a target GPA such as a cumulative 2.0 to be removed from the academic notice process or to get university honors
  • Calculating your GPA to avoid probation and academic disqualification
  • Calculating your GPA when you are repeating courses
