Policies & procedures: Subject to dismissal
You need to maintain an overall UC grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher, a technical GPA of 2.0 or higher, an upper division technical GPA of 2.0 or higher and earn a GPA each semester of 2.0 or higher. Students are subject to dismissal if at the end of any fall or spring semester they do not meet any of the above minimum GPA requirements.
You should always review your grades at the end of each semester, and if you have failed to meet the minimum academic standards, contact your Engineering Student Services (ESS) Adviser immediately. If there are extenuating circumstances that contributed to your academic difficulty, you should discuss these issues with your ESS Adviser.
At the end of each semester, the records of all students subject to dismissal are reviewed. Advisers encourage students to write a letter explaining the nature of their difficulties and their plans to return to good academic standing. After careful review of the file, the college determines whether a student is dismissed or continued on probation. In some cases, students who are dismissed may be eligible for readmission in a future semester. Due to the timeline for posting of official grades, students may not be notified of their dismissal for several weeks after the end of the semester in question. Regardless of when a student receives official notification of the dismissal action, students will not be allowed to continue in classes in the following semester once they are dismissed.
