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).

Academic Notice Requirements



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.

*PLEASE NOTE: Students placed on Academic Notice or Continued Notice who have chosen to stop out for the current semester (not enrolled in any courses) will not be required to complete RESET until they return for the following semester (ex: if you are taking a stop out for spring, you will be required to complete RESET if/when you enroll into courses for the fall).




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 check out the list of Academic Notice Contacts below. The list includes links to your Student Success Team’s website where you may find more information about their requirements for Academic Notice. It also includes names and emails for appropriate advisors/specialists within your major’s college.


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