Undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative and CSUMB grade point average of at least 2.0 and demonstrate satisfactory progress to degree consistent with university policy (4.500 Academic Standing, Probation and Disqualification).
As an undergraduate student, you will be placed on Academic Probation if at any time your cumulative grade point average in all college work or cumulative GPA at CSUMB falls below 2.0. Admissions & Records will notify you if you are placed on Academic Probation. You will remain on Academic Probation until your cumulative and CSUMB GPA reach 2.0 or above, or until you have been Academically Disqualified.
As a classified or conditionally classified graduate student or credential student, you will be placed on Academic Probation if your CSUMB GPA falls below 3.00. A graduate chair may also notify you of Academic Probation or disqualification for failure to maintain a GPA of 3.00 or better in all courses taken to satisfy requirements for the degree. While on academic probation, if your cumulative CSUMB GPA remains below 3.00 for a second consecutive term, you may be academically disqualified by the program. Your graduate department will notify you of your academic status.
