Probation, Disqualification, and Reinstatement


Students are placed on academic probation when their SJSU GPA drops below a 2.0. The CHHS Student Success Center helps students return to good academic standing through the Academic Support Program (ASP). In the ASP, assigned advisors work closely with students who are on academic probation. Our Peer Mentors meet with students weekly for 1:1 sessions that focus on setting academic goals, developing better study strategies and adopting time management techniques. Students on probation in the ASP also learn about their learning style(s) to become more academically successful. 

Every semester, advisors host ASP informational sessions to explain the academic probation policy and how the CHHS Student Success Center can help. Please visit the Events and Workshops page for upcoming session details.


Students on academic probation are subject to Academic Disqualification from SJSU if their subsequent Fall or Spring term GPA is below a 2.0. Administrative-Academic Disqualification can occur if a student is not making satisfactory progress towards degree completion regardless of their GPA. Our advisors can help students understand why they were disqualified and help them work their way back to the university through reinstatement. 


Reinstatement is a different process from readmission. Unless reinstatement has been approved, readmission is not possible. In most situations, a student must apply for readmission prior to being reinstated due to university application deadlines in Cal State Apply. Reinstatement can be complicated, so we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our advisors to talk through the process.
