Academic Notice

What does Academic Notice status mean?

If your Chico State or cumulative grade point average falls below 2.00, you will be placed on academic notice (formerly Academic Probation). In this case, you should meet with your major advisor and an advisor within the first two weeks of the semester to potentially make changes to your academic schedule or program.

While on academic notice, you should restrict your course load to 14 units or less each semester until you achieve clear academic standing (a minimum GPA of 2.00).
