If an international student in F-1 visa status is academically disqualified from San Jose State University (SJSU), this could adversely impact their F-1 status and their ability to continue to maintain their immigration status and stay in the U.S. A student is considered to be academically disqualified if they are on probation for two consecutive semesters.
Per University rules, a student is put on probation when the following occurs:
- Undergraduate students - Cumulative GPA falls below 2.0
- Graduate students - Cumulative GPA falls below 3.0
If an international student F-1 student is academically disqualified from SJSU, they would have the following options:
- Transfer SEVIS record to another U.S. institution before the start of the next semester.
- One option is to enroll at semester at SJSU (SAS) through the SJSU International Gateways Program.
- Another option is to transfer to a community college.
- If a student does not request a transfer out before the start of the next semester, their SEVIS record will be terminated. The student will no longer be able to legally remain in the U. S. and will need to depart immediately.
