University Academic Notice and Disqualification


All undergraduate students are required to maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to remain in good academic standing and to graduate. 

The overall GPA is different from a semester GPA. The overall GPA is your cumulative GPA that you earn starting from the first semester as an undergraduate student at SJSU. It is the GPA that takes into account the GPA earned for all previous semesters. The semester GPA is your GPA that is calculated on a semester-by-semester basis.

University Academic Notice and At-Risk

An undergraduate student is on Academic Notice if the SJSU GPA falls below 2.0.

If an undergraduate student is currently in good standing, and at the end of a semester their overall GPA falls below 2.0, they will be placed on “University Academic Notice”. A status of University Academic Notice indicates that the student is not performing to minimum undergraduate GPA standards and is at risk of being disqualified from the university.

Once on University Academic Notice, undergraduate students are subject to disqualification if they fail to earn a SJSU term GPA of 2.0 or better each semester until a SJSU cumulative GPA of 2.0 is again established. See:

Freshmen who meet the CSU eligibility requirements may apply to the BSISDA program.
