Academic Difficulty

Oct 11, 2017 Katherine J Parpana

As described in the General Catalog, there are a few reasons why a student would fall under a category of academic difficulty.

  • Qualitative Standing (Grades)  - calculated every quarter, UC cumulative and quarterly GPA 
    • Academic Probation: 2.00-1.50 UC GPA   
    • Subject to Dismissal: Below 1.50 UC GPA   
      • 3rd consecutive quarter on Academic Probation
      • 16 units of “incomplete” grades
  • Quantitative Standing (Minimum Progress)  - calculated after spring quarter, and if the student is deficient in spring, it will be calculated again after fall quarter 
    • Students should be completing an average of 13 units per quarter 
    • Academic Probation: 36-39 units after spring (Fall + Winter + Spring)  
    • Subject to Dismissal: less than 36 units after spring 


If you are experiencing academic difficulty, it is important you are seeking out help from a Dean’s Office Academic Counselor. You are welcome to drop-in to 150 Mrak Hall in order to make an appointment during our drop-in hours between 9AM-12PM and 1:30PM-4PM.
