Your academic advisor is still here to help! Make sure you are keeping in communication for updates.
CSU has suspended its Academic Standing Policy for the Spring 2020 term, except in instances where licensure and regulatory considerations come in to play. This means that students whose academic performance would normally put them on academic warning, probation, or dismissal (graduate level) will not have that occur this semester, and students whose academic performance would normally progress to probation or suspension under the policy, will be given an additional semester without penalty.
CSU is instituting a Pass/Fail grading option to give students more flexibility in the current situation. The option is available for all undergraduate and graduate classes, except those where a letter grade is required for licensure or regulatory reasons. Students can choose Pass/Fail or work toward a traditional letter grade. Details on the Pass/Fail option will be available later this week.
Withdrawal deadline: Extended to April 24th
