Academic/Progress Probation I Students:
PASS (Probation and Student Success) Workshops are designed for students who are on Academic and/or Progress Probation I. The mission of the PASS workshops is to encourage and support our students' persistence in successfully achieving their overall academic and career goals. These workshops include helpful information about university policies and procedures, understanding academic probation, the reasons why students encounter academic problems, and how to receive help and support from campus services.

Students must bring to the workshop a completed "Student Progress Report" form, and "Petition to Exceed Maximum Units/Appeal for Readmission" form. These forms are available both online under Counseling Forms as well as in the Counseling Office. Both forms will be required for students petitioning to take more than 12 units the following semester.
