Academic Notice

Students are placed on Academic Notice/Continued Notice when their Cal State Fullerton (CSUF) and/or Cumulative GPA(s) fall or remain below a 2.0 (“C” average).


To help students regain good academic standing and achieve academic success, all students placed on Academic Notice/Continued Notice are required to participate in the RESET course experience through Canvas. The RESET course is mandatory for all students who are placed on Academic Notice or Continued Notice at the end of Fall and/or Spring semesters. All Notice students will be automatically added to the course after academic standing is determined.


RESET is designed to help students assess their current success strategies and reset as needed. After completing RESET requirements, students will better understand Academic Notice/Continued Notice, be aware of important University policies, better navigate academic and student wellness resources, utilize the GPA Calculator tool as needed, and update their strategies for academic improvement.


There are five (5) required RESET tasks with corresponding learning activities to review the aforementioned topics. Learning activities help check for understanding and allow students to briefly reflect upon factors which may have contributed to their placement on Academic Notice or Continued Notice. Be sure to take notes throughout the RESET experience to keep yourself well informed about resources, policies, tips, and reminders. All tasks and learning activities must be completed by no later than the established dates listed in the course. Students are welcome to complete the tasks sooner, if desired. The RESET course is NOT graded and NOT credit-bearing.


Please note that some academic colleges will require academic advising in addition to RESET. Check your CSUF email regularly for more information from your college and/or major department, and checkout the Student Success Initiative website for your Student Success Team’s details.


Any students who do not complete RESET requirements by the established due date will receive an Academic Notice registration hold. This hold will remain until students complete all RESET requirements and any additional requirements established by their college and/or major department. Incomplete requirements will result in future course registration delays.


To ensure an Academic Notice Hold is not placed on your record or is released before next semester’s course registration period, review the below information and complete the steps:

  1. During the second week of January, you will be added to the RESET course. At that time, you will receive an email notification from CANVAS to accept your RESET course invitation. Click on the “Accept Invitation” link in that email or log into your Canvas account through your Student Portal and accept the course invitation there.
  2. You can begin accessing course materials on the first day of the semester. Click on the RESET course icon on your Dashboard and complete all requirements as instructed. Take note of the RESET course “to-do list” dates as a guide to completing tasks within a timely manner.
  3. Continue checking your CSUF email and/or visit your Student Success Team’s website for more information about any additional advising requirements. Complete advising requirements accordingly.
