Academic Probation Advising

Note: The following academic probation advising information is for students majoring in the College of Communications only:

Cinema and Television Arts (CTVA)

Communications (COMM)

Communication Studies (HCOM)

Communicative Disorders (COMD)

We are here to help you succeed if you have been placed on academic probation. Students are placed on academic probation if their CSUF GPA and/or cumulative GPA falls below 2.0.

Students placed on academic probation after fall 2020 will not be able to register for summer or fall 2021 classes until they have completed the mandatory probation advising requirement. Please complete the following steps:


1) Complete the online Academic Probation TutorialOpens in new window . (It will take approximately 45 minutes to complete.)

2) After completing the Academic Probation tutorial, you must schedule a virtual (phone/Zoom) probation advising session with an advisor in the College of Communications Student Success Center.


First-time freshmen placed on academic probation after their very first semester must participate in the Academic Success Institute during January, which will require multiple steps to help you regain good academic standing. You will receive an e-mail with details and further instructions during the second week of January, after Registration and Records notifies you of your probation status.


Continuing freshmen and sophomores (0-59 units earned) are recommended to schedule a "probation advising for continuing students" appointmentOpens in new window with Axis Avalos.


Juniors not yet eligible to apply for graduation (60-84 units earned) are recommended to schedule a "probation advising for continuing students" appointmentOpens in new window with Connie Chen or Stephanie Malone.


Seniors eligible to apply (or have applied) for graduation (85+ units earned) are recommended to schedule a "probation advising for graduating seniors" appointmentOpens in new window with Connie Chen or Tammy Rogers.

Students who have applied for spring/summer 2021 graduation may also e-mail Tammy Rogers (trogers@fullerton.edu) for probation advisement by e-mail, after you have completed the tutorial. In your message, include your CWID, mention that you have completed the tutorial, and include questions about your probation status.

When do I need to complete this probation advising requirement?

Complete your probation advisement by no later than March 2021 to avoid delays to your summer and fall 2021 enrollment. Students placed on academic probation after fall 2020 will have a registration hold placed on their accounts in late February 2021. Your hold will be removed after you complete the probation advising requirement.
