Probation - Administrative-Academic - Graduate
Regardless of the cumulative GPA, administrative-academic probation or disqualification can be imposed by the Associate Dean or AVP of Graduate Studies & Research for the following reasons:
- Withdrawal from all or a substantial portion of a program of studies in two successive terms or in any three terms, whether by formal withdrawal processes or from failure to attend but not including authorized leaves of absence. A student whose withdrawal is directly associated with a chronic or recurring disability or its treatment is not subject to administrative-academic probation for such withdrawal.
- Failure to progress satisfactorily toward the degree or other program objective, including that resulting from assignment of 9 units of "NC," when such failure appears to be due to circumstances within the student's control, failure to form a master's committee, failure to pass writing requirements, or failure to progress due to excessive course withdrawals. While administrative action under this category is subject to the discretion of the individual programs which set the standards for their own students, the action must be justified to and agreed upon by the Academic Disqualification and Reinstatement Review Committee, which would hear appeals of decisions within this realm.
- Failure to comply, after due notice, with an academic requirement or regulation which is routine for all students or a defined group of students (examples: failure to complete a required CSU or campus examination, failure to complete a required practicum, failure to comply with professional standards appropriate to the field of study, failure to complete a specified number of units as a condition for receiving student financial aid or making satisfactory progress in the academic program, failure to put together a graduate committee of qualified individuals). Students in conditionally classified status are effectively on probation until the conditions are met. Failure to clear them within a period stipulated in the description of the conditions results in immediate adminstrative-academic disqualfication.
When such action is taken, the student will be notified in writing and provided with the conditions for removal from probation and the circumstances that would lead to disqualification should probation not be removed. The program also must notify the Registrar's Office for inclusion in the permanent record.
