You’re Out, I Think…

Wrong Cal State Students Receive Letters of Academic Probation

You’re Out, I Think…

by Suada Kolovic

Talk about a lump of coal in your stocking!

About 500 California State University students were just beginning to settle into their winter breaks when, during the week of December 27th, they received letters stating they had been academically disqualified from returning to school for the winter quarter. University officials tell the Los Angeles Times that while all of the recipients were on academic probation, only 164 students should have received disqualification letters.

The letters explained that the recipients’ Fall 2010 and overall GPAs fell below university standards for continued enrollment. Students were also told they could submit a petition to be reinstated after meeting with their academic adviser. The blunder was blamed on a mailing code error – something that seems to be happening all too often lately.

Colleges sure know how to stress a student out but if you’re stressed about finding financial aid, you don’t have to be: Check out our free scholarship search and get matched with scholarships just for you today!
