13(espcially for Grad School!) Grades, Repeating, GPA& Financial AidGradesCSUN’s grading system includes pluses and minusesPROTECT your Major GPA(espcially for Grad School!)Grade PointsGrade4A3.7A-3.3B+3.0B2.7B-2.3C+2.0C1.7C-1.3D+1D0.7D-FIn Com Disrd = FBe very careful…some majors have additional grade requirements!In some majors = FIn most majors = F
14Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid Most Graduate Programs require at least a 3.0 GPA (or higher GRE’s if below). Protect your major GPA!Be sure to balance your course load with your academic and life demands, to help maintain your GPA and your sanityIf either your CSUN or Overall GPA go below 2.0 you will be placed on Academic Probation (it may jeopardize your financial aid)Once on probation, if either your CSUN (or Overall) GPA drops below 1.85 you can be Academically Disqualified (i.e., kicked out, and possibly not able to come back for at least a year – in some cases it can happen if you go below 1.95)**Therefore, Disqualification could result even if entering with an almost 4.0 overall GPA, and then having a CSUN semester of C’s & C- followed by another 2.0 semester.
15Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid Repeating Classes – Grade ReplacementMust be repeated at CSUN (Must wait until 2 days before class to registerUp to 16 unitsClasses with grades of C- or below only2nd Time only, only one chance (if must take again, will go into GPA)Forgiven but not forgotten (remains on transcript although not calculated in GPA).Financial Aid will not cover repeats for passed classes (i.e., any grade above an F). They may count against your Satisfactory Academic Progress calculation.
16Grades, Repeating, GPA & Financial Aid Financial Aid: Satisfactory Academic ProgressSatisfactory 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 opportunities to appeal, though limited.
17Fees & Payment OptionsStudents must pay registration fees by deadline or be disenrolled (look for due dates when enrolling)Part time (0-6 units) – $2, *Full time ( units) – $3, *Installment plan is availableIf you are paying out of state tuition, and have attended at least 3 years of California high school, you may have some other options (talk with us after the presentation)* Does not reflect possible increases proposed by CSU Board of Trustees

21What is a Degree Progress Report (DPR) or My Academic Planner (MAP)? Snapshot of was has been completed – at that momentAlong with the Catalog, It’s the Roadmap/Blueprint of how to Complete your Degree
22Degree Progress Reports & My Academic Planer Need help getting your DPR or MAP?Admissions & Records has “How To” guides that take you through a step by step process.Using the CSUN “Search” is probably the fastest way to get to them.(You can also find them through the Registration Guide on Quick Links or in your portal in the My Path To Graduation section).
23My Academic Planner & Degree Progress Reports My Academic Planner (MAP) – (aka Interactive DPR)The DPR & MAP allow you to view all required classes. You can see what classes you need to complete your degree, the classes you have taken, and which transfer classes have been evaluated.You should bring a DPR to advisement.Degree Progress Report (DPR)
24My Academic PlanerThe MAP also is the quickest to determine prerequisites to classes in your major – they are linked to catalog descriptions which note any pre-reqs (especially helpful for majors with classes from many departments).My Academic Planner (MAP) – (aka Interactive DPR)
