Academic Probation and Disqualification
Source Committee: Executive Committee

As a result of the COVID-19 epidemic reaching San Francisco, SFSU suspended (on March 11, 2020) in-person classes and directed that faculty move to remote instruction. While these changes were instituted for good public health reasons, they have necessarily disrupted the normal processes of the University. Faculty are no longer available for normal advising of students and many students will have a smaller number of letter grades issued, resulting in an inability to make progress towards removing themselves from probation.
The following parts of #S17-275 shall be suspended for the spring 2020 term. Section I: Undergraduate Student Probation
Undergraduate students on academic probation shall have their academic probation holds removed without being required to seek advising so that they may register for
summer and fall 2020 courses. Section II: Academic Disqualification
A. No undergraduate student shall be academically disqualified at the end of the spring 2020semester.
B. Undergraduate students who are subject to disqualification shall have their academic probation holds removed without being required to seek advising so that they may register for summer and fall 2020 courses.
Section VI: Graduate student probation and disqualification
A. No graduate student shall be academically disqualified at the end of the spring 2020 semester.
This policy shall be in effect through spring 2020. The Academic Senate shall consider whether an extension of this policy is needed in fall 2020.
