EXPECTED PROGRESS

Students in the University of California are expected to complete 15 units each quarter. Accordingly, students who complete at least 45 units over a three-term period (one academic year) and maintain at least a 2.0 term and cumulative GPA are making expected progress.

PROBATION

Based on unit progress

  • An undergraduate student who fails to pass at least 40 units during any three consecutive academic terms shall be on probation.
  • Students on probation who fail to meet minimum progress by the end of the next two consecutive academic terms will be subject to dismissal from the University.

Based on grades

  • Students will be placed on academic probation if their term (not including summer)/overall GPA falls below 2.0 but is above or equal to 1.5. Students placed on probation will have two consecutive academic terms to bring their overall GPA back to 2.0.
  • Students placed on academic probation who do not bring their overall GPA to 2.0 or above within two consecutive academic terms, or whose term GPA once again falls below 2.0 the next academic term, will become subject to dismissal.


SUBJECT TO DISMISSAL

Based on unit progress

  • An undergraduate student who fails to pass at least 32 units during any three consecutive academic terms shall be subject to dismissal.
  • An undergraduate student who fails to clear probation after two consecutive academic terms will be subject to dismissal.
  • Students on subject to dismissal will be placed on a contract for two consecutive academic terms written to assist them in satisfying minimal progress to degree. Students who fail to meet the terms of their contract will be dismissed from the University.

Based on grades

  • Students placed on academic probation who do not bring their overall GPA to 2.0 or above within two consecutive academic terms, or whose term GPA once again falls below 2.0 the next academic term, will become subject to dismissal.
  • Students whose academic term or cumulative GPA falls below 1.5 is subject to dismissal, even if it’s the student’s first quarter of residency.
  • Students on subject to dismissal based on grades will be placed on a contract for two consecutive academic terms written to assist them in satisfying minimum GPA requirements. Students who fail to meet the terms of their contract will be dismissed from the University.


ENROLLMENT RESTRICTIONS

Students who are either on academic probation or who are subject to dismissal must enroll in at least 14 units of coursework, and up to the minimum number of units to reach satisfactory academic progress (unless the student is approved for a decreased course load), and may not take classes on a Pass/No Pass grading basis (unless the course is offered on that basis only).
