3Your Responsibilities Regularly check your CSUN and your myNorthridge CSUN Portal (official mode of CSUN communication) .Familiarize yourself with your “myNorthridge” CSUN portal.Pay your fees on time.Send ALL your high school transcripts, AP scores, and community college transcripts to CSUNFinish all pending paperwork (i.e. Financial Aid, Housing)Make copies of everything you submit (electronic and hard copy documents ) and keep in a folderGet assistance for your classes right away, don’t wait until it’s too late!If in doubt, visit our office in Sequoia Hall 111 and talk to your academic advisor!

It is the student’s responsibility to adjust their schedule.If you do not attend class, you will receive a “WU” = “F”.Since your hold will be replaced after today’s session: You will not be able to alter your schedule, unless you contact an advisor in the SSC/EOP.Call:Include your NAME and CSUN ID#Let us know specifically what you need to change
5Grades and Academic Standing Probation and DisqualificationGPA less than 2.0 = ProbationMinimum GPA after second semester is 1.5(below 1.5 = Disqualification)Grade Forgiveness (but not forgotten)If taken at CSUN, can repeat at CSUN up to 16 units; one repeat per course; Grades of C- or below only.Due to budget cuts, very challenging to get into classes for repeats.Financial aid will not pay for replacement classes unless student has received an F.Grading SystemGrade = Grade Points per unit (Classes with more units have a greater impact in your GPA)A = 4.0A- = 3.7B+ = 3.3B = 3.0B- = 2.7C+ = 2.3==============C- = 1.7D+ = 1.3D = 1.0D- = 0.7F/WU = 0.0
6Financial Aid Financial Aid: Satisfactory Academic Progress Satisfactory Pass Rate – Ratio CSUN Units Earned (UE) to CSUN Units Attempted (UA). Students must have passed at least 80% of all Units Attempted (UA). (Transfer units are not included in this calculation). Repeated CSUN course work are included, F’s, I’s, NC’s, W’s, and WU’s count as UA with zero UE).Satisfactory Pass Rate = UE/UA ≥ 80%Part Two: Satisfactory Grade Point Average – Students disqualified ineligible for financial aid based on grade point average standards. Students are not eligible for financial aid until they are officially readmitted to Cal State Northridge. Readmitted students must meet all other SAP policy standardsUnit and Time Limits – 150 attempted units (125 percent of units required to graduate) are the maximumOther Provisions – See Financial Aid site (http://www.csun.edu/financialaid/basics/affects_satisfactory.php)There are opportunities to appeal, though limited.
