Academic Probation

To remain in good standing, a student working towards a baccalaureate degree must maintain a SF State GPA and Combined Cum GPA of 2.0 (C) or better.  Academic probation/subject to disqualification and disqualification actions are taken only at the end of each regular semester.

The probation policy is changing starting this Fall 2017.  More information will roll out in fall.  You can find more information on Academic Probation on the Academic Senate website.
To view the current Academic Probation Policy please review the 2016 – 2017 SF State Bulletin.
