Our Best Answer - How can I clear my probationary status and return to good standing?

Academic Probation

If you are on academic probation level 1 or level 2, you will need to bring your overall or cumulative grade point average to a 2.0 or better. Students in good academic standing have a “C” (2.0) average or better. You can raise your GPA by earning “A’s” and “B’s” in your new classes and by repeating the same class where a “D.” “WF,” or “F” grade was earned. Limiting the number of units you attempt or reducing your work hours can be helpful because it allows you more time to study for classes.  You should also consider using campus resources such as tutoring

For information on Academic Probation: or make an appointment with the Counseling Department. If your grades and completed units do not clear your probationary status, you may either continue on probation or you may face dismissal. If you are on academic probation and your semester GPA increases as a result of your grades but your overall GPA is still less than 2.0, you will continue your probationary status. If your overall GPA declines you may be dismissed.  [Board Policy 4250]
