Academic Probation Support
Many students face academic difficulty at some point in their college careers—you are not alone! There are many people across campus that are here to support you in your academic journey.
Academic Probation Policy
Students earning a 2.0 GPA or lower will be placed on academic probation. Click here for more information on academic probation support and to access the complete policy. Every student on academic probation in the College of Science and Mathematics is required to participate in some type of intervention as a means of providing support and to help ensure student success. Required interventions are listed below.
First Year Success Program
Coordinated through the College of Science and Mathematics Advising Center. Students on academic probation meet with a peer academic coach four times throughout the quarter to discuss their unique situation and cover topics such as study habits, time management, campus resources, and more. Students will receive an email with more information for participation.
New transfer students on academic probation for the first time after fall or winter quarter must participate in the Transfer Success Program (TSP) coordinated through the Mustang Success Center. The goal of TSP is to provide students the opportunity to connect with peers, staff, and faculty. In addition, students will learn about valuable resources and develop an individualized action plan to support their pursuit of continued success.
Second Year & Continuing Students
Students who are on Academic Probation after their first year at Cal Poly will be required to meet with an academic advisor in the College of Science and Mathematics Advising Center prior to the fourth week of the following quarter to develop an academic success plan.
