Academic and Administrative Probation
Academic Probation
 
If a student is currently in good standing, and at the end of a semester their overall GPA falls below 3.0, they will be placed on "Academic Probation." A status of Academic Probation indicates that the student is not performing to minimum graduate GPA standards and is at risk of being disqualified from the university. Students on Academic Probation will have a hold placed on their academic records. An academic hold will preclude students from registering for future classes. To remove this hold, a student must obtain Probation Advising from their academic advisor in order to remove the hold and to allow the student to register for classes. Once on academic probation, graduate students are subject to disqualification if they fail to earn a SJSU term GPA of 3.0 or better each semester until a SJSU cumulative GPA of 3.0 is again established. See: S10-6 www.sjsu.edu/senate/S10-6.pdf
 
Students on probation may consult a special probation calculator to project how taking a given number of classes with variations of expected grades would affect their ability to clear probation in the next term.
 
Administrative Probation
 
If a student fails to make a B in each core class (Libr 200,202,204) the student is placed on administrative probation and is at risk of disqualification. . If on a second attempt the student again fails to make a B the student will be administratively disqualified. Once on academic/administrative  probation, graduate students are subject to disqualification if they fail to earn a SJSU term GPA of 3.0 or better each semester until a SJSU cumulative GPA of 3.0 is again established. See: S10-6 www.sjsu.edu/senate/S10-6.pdf
 
If a student is awarded  a NC (No Credit)  grade in Libr 289 -the Schools's culminating class- the student will be placed on administrative probation and is at risk of disqualification.  If a second NC (No Credit) is awarded for the class the student will be administratively disqualified..
