Academic probation occurs when a student has attempted a total of 18 quarter units and earned a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0.

Important Information

Students will be placed on academic probation each quarter (excluding summer) as long as their cumulative GPA is below a 2.0.

Students will advance to the next level of academic probation in each consecutive enrolled quarter in which they do not earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0. Students who earn a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 for five consecutive enrolled quarters will be dismissed. Students have the option to appeal their dismissal status.

Additional information may be found on the Counseling and Advising webpages.

Important Note: The De Anza College Probation/Dismissal system might not accurately reflect the correct academic probation status for students who have enrolled at both Foothill College and De Anza College. Students who are enrolled within the current quarter at both colleges or have an academic history with both colleges, should go to the Counseling Center at De Anza College for assistance regarding their probation/dismissal status at De Anza.

If at any time students attend both De Anza College and Foothill College, it is their responsibility to keep track of their grades to ensure that they remain in good standing ab each college. Although students may be in good standing at Foothill College, if they fall below the required academic performance at De Anza College, the probation and dismissal procedures will be applied to them at De Anza.
