Different types of Academic Probation:
1. Term Probation
A student is placed on Term Probation at the end of a fall or spring semester if the student does not achieve at least a grade-point average of 1.5 for that semester (L&S, CED, CNR & Haas) or 2.0 (COC & COE).
To clear term probation (return to good academic standing) a minimum 2.0 term (semester) and 2.0 cumulative UC GPA must be achieved by the end of the next semester of enrollment (probationary term).
2. Cumulative Probation
A student is placed on 2.0 Academic Probation at the end of a fall or spring semester if the student does not achieve at least an overall UC grade-point average of 2.0.
To clear overall probation, a minimum 2.0 overall (cumulative) UC GPA must be achieved by the end of the next semester of enrollment (probationary term).
3. Departmental Probation
Certain departments require students to maintain a minimum GPA for major courses. For example, the College of Engineering requires students to maintain a 2.0 technical GPA and declared MCB/IB students must maintain a 2.0 GPA in all major courses.
Students in the College of Letters & Science must enroll in and pass letter-graded coursework each semester in order to earn sufficient grade points to achieve good academic standing.
A student who receives all incomplete grades, takes all courses on a passed/not passed basis, earns all IPs, or a combination of passed/not passed, incomplete, "M" or missing grades, NR and IP grades will fail to achieve a sufficient GPA and will be placed on probation. Even if the student earns all passes, since no grade points are earned, the student will have a 0.0 GPA and will be placed on probation.
