academic eligibility and talk with students about the academic standing
guidelines. The following is a summary of the guidelines:

##
**Rules for Freshman:**

Freshman are ineligible if they have 24 or more units of E or F
(or 3 or more course grades of E or F) (exclusive of PE). For third term,
freshmen must earn a 1.9 GPA or they will be ineligible. After
reinstatement, a freshman becomes ineligible again if he or she earns
6 or more units of E or F (exclusive of PE) during any freshman term.

**Rules for Upperclassmen:**

Upperclassmen are ineligible if they have <1.4 for a term or <1.9 for
a year, calculated in June. They are ineligible as well if they have
27 or more units of E or F in any one term or 45 or more units of E and F
for the year, calculated in June. After reinstatement, students on grades
become ineligible if they get less than a 1.9 on a minimum of 36 units of
