Academic and Administrative Probation
If a student is currently in good standing, and at the end of a semester their overall GPA falls below 3.0, they will be placed on "Academic Probation." A status of Academic Probation indicates that the student is not performing to minimum graduate GPA standards and is at risk of being disqualified from the university. Students on Academic Probation who earned less than a B in a core course (INFO 200, 202, 204) are placed on Administrative Probation by iSchool and will have a hold placed on their academic records. Students needing to repeat a core course will need a permission number in order to register in the repeated course on the first day of the new semester. They will be contacted by iSchool Student Services with instructions on how to access a web form to request a space in their repeated classes. Students who want to repeat an elective, where they have received less than a C, will need to contact the instructor the week before the semester begins and request permission to add on the first day of instruction. Permission numbers are given at the discretion of instructors. Once on academic probation, graduate students are subject to disqualification if they fail to earn a SJSU term GPA of 3.0 or better each semester until a SJSU cumulative GPA of 3.0 is again established.

Tools for Academic Progress Planning
Students on probation are encouraged to take advantage of our self-paced workbook, Solutions for Success. Students on probation may use the workbook's exercises and steps to create their plan forward, including a special probation calculator to project how taking a given number of classes with variations of expected grades would affect their ability to clear probation in the coming terms.
If a student fails to make a B in each core class (INFO 200,202,204) the student is placed on administrative probation and is at risk of disqualification. If on a second attempt the student again fails to make a B the student will be administratively disqualified.
Once on academic/administrative probation, graduate students are also subject to disqualification if they fail to earn a SJSU term GPA of 3.0 or better each semester until a SJSU cumulative GPA of 3.0 is again established. See: S10-6 www.sjsu.edu/senate/S10-6.pdf
If a student is awarded a NC (No Credit) grade in INFO 289 -the Schools's culminating class- the student will be placed on administrative probation and is at risk of disqualification. If a second NC (No Credit) is awarded for the class the student will be administratively disqualified.
