Students earning a 2.0 term GPA or less will be placed on academic probation. Every student on academic probation in the College of Liberal Arts is required to participate in some type of intervention as a means of providing support to help ensure student success. Required interventions are listed below.
First year freshmen and transfer students on academic probation for the first time after fall or winter quarter:
Attend a “First Year Success” program or “Transfer Success Program” coordinated through the Mustang Success Center https://advising.calpoly.edu/academic-probation-support
All other students on academic probation will meet one-on-one with either an academic advisor or department representative, based on majors noted below. During this meeting, they will review and sign a “Student Success Contract”.
- Art & Design
- Child Development
- Ethnic Studies
- Political Science
- Theatre Arts
- Communication Studies
- Graphic Communication
- Liberal Arts & Engineering Studies
- Modern Languages & Literatures
Since each student has a unique situation or set of circumstances that hindered their ability to be academically successful, these one-on-one meetings are designed to help provide assistance and resources that is most helpful and appropriate for each individual student. Students that do not participate in the interventions outlined above will have registration hold placed on the next quarter of attendance.
