Probation Advising

What is Academic Probation?

Undergraduate students are placed on academic probation if, at any time, their SJSU cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. The ACCESS Success Center’s mission is to provide support and guidance to students on probation to help them return to good academic standing. 

At the end of the semester, students who were on probation will be placed in one of three categories:

  1. Good Academic Standing: The student’s semester GPA is above 2.0, which is high enough to bring the SJSU cumulative GPA to 2.0
  2. Continued Probation: The student’s semester GPA is at 2.0 or above, but it is not high enough to bring the SJSU cumulative GPA to 2.0. The student will be notified that an appointment with an ACCESS advisor is required at least one time during the Fall 2020 semester
  3. Disqualification: The student’s semester GPA is below 2.0 (which will also bring the cumulative GPA down). An ACCESS advisor will reach out to all disqualified students to discuss options and next steps to become reinstated.
