Students with Major GPAs below 2.0 or who have not made significant progresstowards major completion will be placed on Major Probation. Students are also placed on Major Probation at the discretion of their major department. You will be alerted to this status via communication from the Engineering Student Success Center (ESSC) at the beginning of the semester. An Engineering Major Probation Hold will be placed on your account and can only be removed by completing the steps outlined below.
Engineering Major Probation is different than University Academic Probation. For more detailed on University Academic Probation, please visit the Academic Advising and Retention Services (AARS) website.
If you are switching out of the College of Engineering, please upload a Study Plan signed by the new major advisor to this Google Form for the ESSC to review and lift your hold.
To remove the Major Probation hold placed on your account, you must complete the following steps BEFORE the deadline indicated in the communication.
- Attend the Major Probation Informational Workshop. See the Workshop Sign-up Form and choose a workshop for dates and times and to RSVP.
Additionally, attend at least TWO of the following activities scheduled throughout the semester:
- One-on-One meeting with an ESSC Advisor
- One-on-One check-in meeting with an ESSC Peer Advisor
- Attend an ESSC Success Workshop
- Attend a Peer Connections tutoring session
- Meet with the Career Advisor at the ESSC
- Attend 2 or more Study Hall sessions
Students with a 1.5 or lower major GPAmust meet with an ESSC Advisor in addition to at least TWO of the above activities. This is provide additional support for students who may need more one-on-one academic guidance.
Students who have completed the above requirements will have their Engineering Major Probation Hold lifted from their account. At the end of the semester, if you have raised your Major GPA above 2.0 or met your major department’s requirements, you will no longer be on Engineering Major Probation. If you have not raised your Major GPA to a 2.0 or above or if your performance has not improved, your major department will review your status and you may be subject to disqualification (DQ) from the major. If this occurs, you will still be an SJSU student, but will then have Undeclared status. You may re-apply to an Engineering major, but readmittance is not guaranteed. ESSC Advisors can help you with the application process. If you are not disqualified from your major, you will be placed on Major Probation for another semester.
Policy effective starting Spring 2018.
