Appendix G, Policy Applying to Students Who Entered UCSC Before Fall 2001

The Navigator 2012-14

Your academic standing is determined by your academic progress, a comparison of the number of credits for which you have earned a grade of C or better (or P) to the number of full-time quarters you have been at UCSC. Courses in which you earn a grade of D, F, or NP do not count toward academic progress (nor do courses from which you officially withdraw or in which you receive an Incomplete grade notation). At the end of each term, your college will determine your academic standing by measuring your current progress and your cumulative progress.

  • Current Progress. Your current progress is determined by checking Chart 1 for the number of credits in which you earn a grade of C or better (or P). If you have passed fewer than 30 credits in your most recent three full-time quarters, you are below minimum progress and will be reviewed for disqualification. If you have passed between 30 and 34 credits in that period, your standing based upon your current progress is Academic Probation.
  • Cumulative Progress. Your cumulative progress is determined by comparing against Chart 2 the number of full-time quarters you have been at UCSC with the total number of credits that you have earned at UCSC with a grade of C or better (or P). For example, if at the end of your fourth full-time quarter you have not passed at least 40 credits, then you are below minimum progress and will be reviewed for disqualification.

Your academic standing is determined by whichever measure is lower. That is, in order to be in good academic standing, you must be in good academic standing on both the current progress chart and the cumulative progress chart. If you are below minimum progress on either the current progress chart or the cumulative progress chart, you will be reviewed for disqualification.

Chart 1: Current Progress
