Academic Probation or Continued Probation means that a student has failed to maintain satisfactory academic progress in all course work attempted at San José State University. Undergraduate students are placed on probation when the SJSU cumulative grade point average falls below a "C" average (2.00) in all units attempted.
Major Probation means that a student has failed to maintain satisfactory academic progress in all course work related to the Major. This includes support courses (lower division math, science and engineering), all required course for the major, and technical electives as well as English 1A and 1B. College of Engineering undergraduate students are placed on probation when the Major-related GPA falls below a "C" average (2.00). You can read more about the Major Probation and DQ Policy here.
If you have been placed on University or Major academic probation or are on continuing probation, a hold will be placed on your account and you will be unable to register for classes for future semesters until you have received the academic advising you need.
The College of Engineering requires that you complete the Probation workshop, designed to help you improve your academic performance. If you do not complete the probation workshop offered by the Engineering Student Success Center, a Major Probation hold will be placed on you MySJSU account on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 which will prohibit you from registering for Fall 2014.
Attend a Probation Workshop offered by the Engineering Student Success Center, workshops are one hour and begin on January 21, 2014 and end on January 28, 2014. Reserve your seat today by selecting Make an Appointment on the right-pane.
Students on probation have the option to schedule an Appointment for Probation Advising and meet with an ESSC Professional Advisor or ESSC Peer Advisor to discuss the conditions which have led to your academic probation status and create a plan to improve your performance.
Our goal is to help you move off academic probation and support you in achieving your academic goal of obtaining a degree from a College of Engineering major.
Please remember that ESSC staff and peer advisors cannot release “major advising” holds. This must be done by your faculty advisor in your department.
