Our Best Answer - What is academic probation?


Academic Probation for Undergraduates

Academic probation is an official notice to students whose academic performance falls below the minimum requirements as measured by the grade point average. 

If your overall or Cal Poly Pomona GPA falls within the following ranges, you are placed on academic probation and an advising hold is placed on the your registration for the following term. The academic probation GPA ranges are:

Freshmen: 1.5 - 1.99 GPA;

Sophomores:  1.7 - 1.99 GPA;

Juniors: 1.9 - 1.99 GPA;

Seniors: 1.95 - 1.99 GPA. 

The advising hold may be released only with the approval of your advisor after you have met for academic advisement. Academic departments may also place an advising hold on your registration if your major core GPA is below 2.0.
