Important information!

If you are currently on probation following the Spring 2020 semester, schedule your required probation advising appointment(s) today in order to meet the Friday, Oct. 9 deadline. Don't wait—contact CSE Advising today to schedule!

Please review the following information for what is expected of students while on probation. Information for scheduling appointments is included. Please note: upper division (in-the-major) students have additional meetings to complete as part of their probation requirements. This information can also be found on the CSE Academic Probation and Suspension website, as well as emails you received from CSE about your probation requirements.

While you are on academic probation, you may register during your designated queue time if you have completed the following steps.

Pre-major (lower division) requirements:
  1. Register for classes. You must be registered for classes prior to the probation appointment with your college advisor.

  2. Schedule a probation appointment with your college advisor. You must contact the CSE Academic Advising Office by October 9, 2020 to schedule that appointment. Schedule an advising appointment.

  3. Complete the Academic Probation Self-Assessment worksheet (pdf) in advance of your appointment, and be prepared to discuss your Worksheet with your college advisor.

    If this form is not complete at the start of your appointment, your probation hold will not be moved, as you will not have met a term of your probation. This means you will not be able to register at your queue time, and you may be required to reschedule your appointment with your advisor. Learn more on the CSE Policies, Procedures, and Forms web page.

  4. During your appointment, be prepared to discuss your completed form, as well as your goals for the term and changes you will make or have made to improve your academic record.
If you have other registration holds placed by the CSE Academic Advising Office, you will be required to schedule a second appointment with your college advisor. There must be a minimum of 24 hours between each advising appointment.

Admitted to major (upper division) requirements:

  1. Register for classes. You must be registered for classes prior to the probation appointments with your Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUGS)/departmental advisor and your college advisor.

  2. Schedule a probation appointment with your DUGS/departmental advisor. If you are admitted to more than one CSE major, you will need to meet with DUGS/departmental advisors from each of your majors.

  3. Schedule a probation appointment with your college advisor. You must contact the CSE Academic Advising office by October 9, 2020 to schedule your appointment with your college advisor. This appointment cannot be scheduled for a date before your appointment with your DUGS/departmental advisor. Schedule an appointment with your CSE college advisor.

  4. Complete the Academic Probation Contract and Self-Assessment Worksheet (pdf) in advance of your appointments and be prepared to discuss your Worksheet with your DUGS/departmental advisor. Then, have your Worksheet ready to discuss with your college advisor. Learn more on the CSE Policies, Procedures, and Forms web page.

  5. If this form is not complete at the start of your appointment with your college advisor, your probation hold will not be moved, as you will not have met a term of your probation. This means you will not be able to register at your queue time, and you may be required to reschedule your appointment with your advisor. Learn more on the CSE Policies, Procedures, and Forms web page.

    During your appointment, be prepared to discuss your completed form, as well as your goals for the term and changes you will make/have made to improve your academic record.
