Dismissed students may attend Summer Session. If a student enrolls in Summer Session during the spring semester and is subsequently dismissed after spring semester, neither summer nor fall classes are cancelled; the student will be reinstated for fall semester if they earn a cumulative 2.0 GPA after summer classes.

  • If a student’s cumulative GPA is not 2.0 after Summer Session, the student will be dismissed and all previously scheduled fall semester classes will be cancelled.
  • Dismissed students are not eligible for financial aid.
  • Dismissed students do have the opportunity to register for GUEST or CSU Online courses for the fall semester.

If you have declared a major, please contact your Academic Success Coordinator in your major’s department.

If you haven’t declared a major, please contact the Collaborative for Student Achievement to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to discuss your options after academic dismissal.

Academic Fresh Start Policy

Former CSU undergraduate students may apply for an academic Fresh Start, a policy which allows students to establish a new academic record. A student may be granted a Fresh Start only once.

An academic Fresh Start may be granted after at least two years have elapsed since the student’s last term of enrollment as an admitted, degree-seeking student, regardless of the number of credits taken. Courses taken through the Division of Continuing Education (CSU Online), as a guest student, or the CSU Summer Session after being dismissed or ceasing enrollment as an admitted degree-seeking student will not count against the two-year interval required for a Fresh Start.

Eligibility for a Fresh Start can be achieved in one or both of the following ways:

1.

  • Be successful in a job or volunteer experience and be able to supply strong letters of recommendation from your employer/supervisor (recommendations must not be from a family member or relative).
  • Take at least 15 credits of academic courses either at another institution or as a guest student at CSU and earn a 2.500 or higher cumulative GPA.

For more information please refer to the General Catalog

A first semester undergraduate student (not a transfer student) who earns below a 1.0 GPA in their first semester can utilize the Accelerated Fresh Start Policy. The student will have two options:

1. Return for the next term and

  • Complete 12 or more credits with a 2.0 term GPA
    • Those below 2.0 term face dismissal
    • Those above 2.0 will earn an additional term
  • Achieve a cumulative 2.0 GPA the following (third) semester and remain a CSU student!

OR

2. Take advantage of the Accelerated Fresh Start option

  • Leave CSU for 1-3 semesters
  • Reapply and return to CSU (Admissions Returning Student Application)
  • Begin earning a *new* cumulative GPA

The Summer Session is not considered a semester in regard to this policy because it is an optional term for students. Therefore, students may enroll in summer courses without it counting against either option listed above.

A first semester undergraduate student (not a transfer student) who earns between a 1.0-1.99 GPA in their first semester has two semesters in which to earn a cumulative 2.0 GPA. Students should work closely with their Academic Success Coordinator or Advisor to develop an academic success plan.

For more information please refer to the General Catalog.

Advising is not required for Summer Session. However, it is recommended for those who can take advantage of it.
