Reenrollment FAQ

Based on your academic standing, total number of units, class level, and/or the number of semesters you have been out of the university, your plan of action to return will vary. Please see the FAQ’s below for more information on your specific conditions.

If you are either on Academic Disqualification or Academic Dismissal, you must apply for reinstatement or readmission after dismissal. Please see the link below for more details; the dates and deadlines are outlined on the bottom of the webpage of the link. Please note that “Academic Disqualification” and “Academic Dismissal” have distinct requirements. Assuming approval of the petition, disqualified students are only admitted for the Fall semester, while dismissed students are only admitted in the Spring.

The deadline to submit your petition for reinstatement is June 26, 2015.

Applications for the Fall 2015 semester are no longer being accepted as the priority filing deadline was November 30th.

Please see the link below for more information on reenrolling for Spring 2016.

If you have been out of the university for more than two semesters, you must first reapply into the CSU system via CSUMentor.

Please be sure to schedule a drop-in session with a degree evaluator at Degree Evaluations, located in Lassen 2000.  Drop-ins are available on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00am-12:00pm.

If you have compiled less than 60 overall units, you must satisfy the following requirements:

1.)    Complete 60 transferable semester units or 90 transferable quarter units of college or university work.

2.)    Have a qualifying GPA

3.)    Be in good academic standing at the last college or university attended.

Your academic standing is a general descriptor of your GPA.

Your academic standing depends on your Sac State and overall (cumulative) GPA’s. Based on your class level, you will also have different requirements. Generally, higher class levels require higher GPA’s. Please see review the Academic Standing Flow Chart.

You can also view your Academic Standing in your MySacState Student Center. Under “Academics,” select “Advising Summary” in the drop-down menu. 



Your class level is determined by the number of units you have accumulated towards your degree. Each class level is determined for every 30 units you have completed.

Freshman              less than 30 units

Sophomore           30 units or more

Junior                   60 units or more

Senior                   90 units or more

To graduate        120 units or more*

*Please contact your department regarding additional major unit requirements you must complete, if any.
