UC Davis - Academic Dismissal/Disqualification

misterIcemisterIce Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
So I'm pretty sure that I'm going to be subject to academic dismissal/disqualification during Spring Quarter. I know that you can appeal to them to let you stay and improve. Is it really hard to appeal to them? This was definitely a rude awakening and I'm already working on a solid, concrete plan to make sure I raise my grades this quarter (I'm on spring break right now). Just wondering if anyone who's been through this can guide me through the process. I've already been on AP twice but managed to raise my grades significantly during the subsequent quarters.

    My sister was subjected to Academic Disqualification in fall quarter. She went to a counselor to appeal, and they said that because her balance points (it's a confusing concept, but the counselor will explain this to you, but generally, you don't want to be at negative balance points) wasn't as super low as others, they allowed her to stay, but they set out guidelines that she must bring her GPA up to a 2.0 by the end of summer 2013 and that she must take summer courses at UCD.

    Hi so I have a quick question to anyone here. I was up for disqualification last quarter Winter 2013 because during fall 2012 my gpa was god awful .9 because i was an engineering major. I failed my ENG 6 class and that screwed my overall gpa. Before i was at a 2.5 so good standing throughout freshman year and then after fall sophomore year i got below a 2.0 to a 1.77. So my appeal went through and was a pass-through student into econ, so my winter quarter gpa was above a 2.0 but my overall only went up to a 1.85. MY transcript indicates im subject for disqual again but I think i should be given a chance to bring my standing back up in the spring because I improved from awful grades and i am marginally close to breaking a 2.0 overall. So i didnt meet my pass through requirements do you think they will give me an extension and let me finish spring quarter?
