To increase student retention by requiring advising from the Advising Center for students on probation.


The original Policy on Academic Advising, SP04-33, has served CI’s students well. SP04-33 requires students on academic probation to meet with an academic advisor during the first two weeks of classes. This time frame is sometimes problematic, particularly in the spring semester, when students’ notification of being placed on academic probation occurs close to the start of classes. This revised policy extends the timeframe during which probationary students must receive mandatory advising by one week. Such students will now be required to meet with an academic advisor by the end of the third week of classes, concurrent with the deadline to add and drop classes. This revised policy does not apply to undergraduate students on an accelerated calendar.



Academic Affairs, Advising Center


All CSU Channel Islands undergraduate students enrolled in courses adhering to a 16-week semester calendar.




An undergraduate student is subject to academic probation if at any time either the student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) in all college work attempted or the student’s cumulative GPA at CSU Channel Islands falls below 2.0. Probationary students will be advised of their status at the end of the semester. The communication will include conditions for removal from probation and the circumstances that would lead to disqualification. All probationary students are required to receive academic advising no later than the end of the third week of the following semester. Students shall be removed from academic probation once they have received such advising and both the cumulative GPA in all college work attempted and the cumulative GPA average at CSU Channel Islands are at least 2.0.
