Disqualification and Reinstatement

Academic disqualification means that the student has not maintained satisfactory academic standing and is involuntarily separated from the University. Any student that has been disqualified shall be notified by the University of the disqualification and of the right to appeal his/her standing at the University.

For more details on Academic Probation and Academic Disqualification, please review CSUMB’S Academic Standing Policy

Appeal & Immediate Reinstatement

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students who have been academically disqualified will receive notification from the Dean of University College.

Undergraduate students who are academically disqualified may appeal immediately for reinstatement only (readmission is not required in this case). Procedures and deadlines to appeal the academic disqualification will be detailed in the University notification.

For more information on appealing a disqualification, please visit the Center for Student Success website

Graduate & Credential Students

Graduate & Credential students who have been academically disqualified will receive notification from their College or program.

After the first disqualification, graduate students may appeal immediately for reinstatement only (readmission is not required in this case). The Reinstatement Petition form must be completely filled out and submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies for processing.

Reinstatement Petition for Graduate & Credential Students

Appeals deadlines must be met even if the student does not intend to return to CSUMB that term. Students who do not attend the first term after reinstatement need to discuss the need for a Leave of Absence request after reinstatement; otherwise, the student may have to reapply to the program.
