Academic Probation: Clearing Your Hold

How To Remove Your Academic Probation Hold

In order to remove your academic probation hold, you must have an approved Academic Probation Hold Clearance Form (pdf).  Please check your SF State email for an email from the Registrar’s Office which contains additional details.  In short, you will electronically fill out the first half of the form and then meet with an advisor(s) and/or department chair for advising and approvals.

Undeclared and/or Changing Majors

If you are undeclared* and/or planning on changing your major, you must attend an Advising Center Powering-up Academic Success Strategies workshop to complete academic probation clearance form to remove your hold.   

*If you are in EOP, you should meet with your EOP advisor in lieu of our workshop.  Please go to the EOP Front Office at SSB 201 or call 415-388-1085 to schedule an appointment with an EOP advisor.
