Academic Probation

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

Students on academic probation will be placed in one of these three categories by the end of the semester:

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 CoSS SSC advisor will reach out to all disqualified students to discuss options and next steps to become reinstated.
