Lurie Educational Achievement Program (LEAP)

What is academic probation?

Undergraduate students are placed on academic probation if, at any time, their SJSU and/or cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. The Student Success Center is here 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 a 2.0 or above, but is not high enough to bring the SJSU cumulative GPA to 2.0. The student will be notified that a hold is placed on their record and they have required advising with the Retention Specialist.
  3. Disqualification: The student's semester GPA is below 2.0 (which will also bring the SJSU cumulative GPA down). The Retention Specialist will work with all disqualified students to discuss options for reinstatement. 

I am on Academic Probation - what happens next?

Lurie College of Education undergraduates who are on academic probation (<2.0 GPA) are placed into an intervention program called the Lurie Educational Achievement Program (LEAP). The primary goal of LEAP is to provide holistic support to academically at-risk students that will increase persistence, retention, and success. Required LEAP activities include meeting with a dedicated advisor, attending workshops, and submitting progress reports.
