Maintaining Continuing Student Status

Removal from Academic Probation

A student shall be removed from academic probation when the overall GPA and the CSUDH GPA are at 2.0 or higher. Please call the CHHSN Advising Office at (310) 243-2120 or (800) 344-5484. The academic advisor will help the student plan to improve their grade point average (GPA). 

Academic Disqualification

Please see the University Catalog for a complete description regarding conditions leading to academic disqualification and reinstatement of formerly disqualified students.

Child Development majors will be reinstated only once. If a reinstated student is put into academic probation or disqualification for a second time, the student will no longer be able to major in Child Development.
