Academic Disqualification Tutorial

  • All disqualified students must complete the following Disqualification Tutorial before they can schedule an advising appointment.
  • The tutorial includes all of the information you need to understand your options after being academically disqualified from CSUF.
  • You are no longer considered an "admitted/matriculated student" after being academically disqualified from CSUF.
  • A short quiz will be given after every section to track your progress.

Steps for Regaining Good Academic Standing and Readmission to the University:-

"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be." - John Wooden

  • STEP 1: Before getting started and proceeding through this process, take a moment to reflect upon your experience as a student. Assess your individual goals. Do you want to earn a degree from CSUF? What changes can be made that will promote a positive outcome? Are you committed to making the changes necessary to become academically successful?

  • STEP 2: Evaluate the primary reasons leading to your Academic Disqualification. Once your individual challenges have been identified, develop a specific plan that will allow you to raise your GPA, make sufficient progress towards a degree, and return to CSUF!

  • STEP 3: Academic Advisement is committed to providing you with the information and guidance necessary for you to get back on track. In order to attend the Academic Support Disqualification Workshop or meet with an advisor, you MUST complete the Disqualification Tutorial After submitting your tutorial quiz results, you MUST also print and fill out your Academic Disqualification worksheet

  • STEP 4: Attend an Academic Support Disqualification Workshop with an advisor. The following items are REQUIRED:

    1. Copy of Unofficial Transcripts (located in Student Center).
    2. Current Printed Titan Degree Audit.
    3. Completed Academic Disqualification Worksheet.

    During your appointment, in collaboration with your advisor, you will review your individual academic plan to efficiently repair your GPA, make degree progress, and become eligible for readmission. Keep in mind when creating your plan, ONLY the first 24 units earned through Open University will count towards your degree.

  • STEP 5: Attend the Disqualification Workshop or advising session. The primary focus of your individual session will be to review your plan of action, readmission procedures, and registering through Open University. This is a shared responsibility between you, the student, and the advisor.
ALL materials are required to either attend the mandatory workshop for newly Disqualified students or meet with an advisor for all previously disqualified students.
