Probation, Disqualification, and Reinstatement


Students are placed on academic probation when their SJSU GPA drops below a 2.0. Our main goal at the CHHS Student Success Center is to help students be academically successful. In our CHHS Academic Support Program we work closely with students on academic probation to help them return to good academic standing. This program provides info sessions which explain academic probation policy, and how we can help. Our program focuses on helping students to set academic goals, develop better study strategies and adopt time management techniques. Students on probation in our program also learn how to identify their particular learning style and leverage this understanding to become more academically successful. Students who participate in the program meet weekly with our Peer Mentors and are assigned a CHHS academic advisor to assist them through the program.  For information on the Public Health probation program, visit this link.


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 than readmission. Unless reinstatement has been approved, readmission is not possible. In most situations, however, a student must apply for readmission prior to being reinstated. This is due to university application deadlines in Cal State Apply. Reinstatement can be complicated to figure out, so we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our advisors so we can walk you through the process. Please refer to "Make an Appointment" page for information on how to make an appointment.
