Section 3: Scholarship Regulations (Regs. 45-46)

45.

  1. The following minimum provisions shall govern the scholastic status of all undergraduate students [as indicated in strictly internal University records; see Divisional Regulation 35 and Senate Regulation 902] at Santa Barbara except students in the College of Creative Studies:
    1. Academic Probation: An undergraduate student shall be placed on academic probation if at the end of any term while he/she is in good standing his or her cumulative grade-point average is less than 2.0 computed on the total of all courses undertaken in the University (however, see paragraph (D) below). (Am 29 Nov 72, Sen Assy)
    2. Academic Disqualification: An undergraduate student shall be subject to academic disqualification from the University if:
      1. at the end of any term his or her grade-point average for that term is less than 1.5, or
      2. while on academic probation his or her grade-point average for any term falls below 2.0, or
      3. after two consecutive terms on academic probation he/she has not achieved a grade-point average of 2.0 computed on the total of all courses undertaken in the University (however, see paragraph (D) below). (Am 29 Nov 72, Sen Assy)
    3. Minimum Cumulative Progress. [Effective Fall 2008] An undergraduate student is required to enroll in a minimum of 12 units in each Fall, Winter and Spring quarter and to maintain the minimum cumulative progress in accordance with the chart, below. An undergraduate student who does not fulfill the unit requirements of the minimum cumulative progress in the previous two completed Fall/Winter/Spring quarters shall be placed on cumulative progress probation and after four completed Fall/Winter/Spring quarters shall be subject to disqualification from further registration at the University. Petitions for exceptions to these requirements must be approved by the dean or designate, and may be granted only for special circumstances, including study abroad and participation in the UC Washington Center and UC Center Sacramento.

      1 12
      2 27

    1. Units earned during a summer session at UCSB or at another accredited school and transferred to UCSB shall be counted toward the minimum cumulative progress. These units may not be used to offset the minimum 12 units per quarter requirement.
    2. For students who enter directly out of high school, units earned under the following two circumstances are not counted toward expected cumulative progress: 1) Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate Examinations; 2) enrollment in college courses while in high school or prior to admission to UCSB.
    3. For transfer students entering with 90-105 units, expected cumulative progress will begin at quarter 7 as outlined in the table above. Advanced standing units upon admission will be counted toward cumulative progress. However, while registered and enrolled in a regular quarter at UCSB, a minimum of 12 units per quarter is required.
    4. Up to 16 units of an allowable repeated course will be calculated as units passed [See also SBR 20C]. Units graded IP (In Progress) will be counted as units passed. Units graded I (Incomplete) are not counted as units passed. When the grade I is replaced by a passing grade, the units will be counted toward cumulative progress for the quarter in which the course was taken.
    5. Students will be exempt from a normally scheduled for review if they have had an approved deficit load in either of the previous two quarters. Students with permanent approved deficit loads are exempt from this regulation for the duration of their college career.
    6. For college-specific norms see the Divisional Regulations as follow:
      1. College of Creative Studies: SBR 46, and 145
      2. College of Engineering: SBR 150
      3. College of Letters and Science: SBR 155 (Am 7 Jun 07)
    1. An undergraduate student on academic probation is under such supervision as the Faculty of his or her college or school may determine. The continued registration or the return of an undergraduate student subject to academic disqualification is at the discretion of the Faculty concerned, or its authorized agent, and is subject to such conditions as that Faculty may impose. (Am 29 Nov 72, Sen Assy).
    2. Undergraduate students in particular schools or colleges may be subject to more stringent norms with respect to academic probation or disqualification, but only on the basis of regulations adopted by a Division of the Senate and approved by the Assembly of the Senate.
  2. To transfer from one campus of the University to another, or from one college or school to another on the same campus, a student who has been academically disqualified or is on academic probation must obtain the approval of the Faculty, or its designated agent, to whose jurisdiction transfer is sought. Upon completion of the transfer, the student is subject to the supervision specified in paragraph (B).
  3. Variances from A.1 and 2.B and C of this regulation must be approved by the Assembly. (Am 7 Jun 07)

46.

  1. Continued registration; in the College of Creative Studies is governed by the following provisions:
    1. each student in the College must maintain a grade-point average of at least 2.0 in all University courses undertaken outside the College;
    2. continuation in a major is subject to Divisional Regulation 105.I. (Am 4 Dec 14)
  2. Students subject to withdrawal from the College as specified in paragraph (A) shall be under such supervision as the Faculty of the College may determine. In the case of students with scholastic deficiencies in courses taken outside the College, the Faculty or its designated agents may exercise the authority specified in Regulation 45.
