Attend a Required Intervention

Students on Academic Probation in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences will be required to complete an intervention. The intervention will differ by a student's year in school, the number of times they have been on Academic Probation, and how close they are to Disqualification. All students will receive an email stating what they are required to do. To summarize, here are interventions required of CAFES students on Academic Probation.

* Students in Animal Science or Agribusiness will be contacted by their departments with instructions.

* All other CAFES students will be required to participate in one of the following:

  • First-Year Freshmen Students: Complete PolyLearn and attend First-Year Success Program.  For more information please contact Cassie Pitkin (cpitkin@calpoly.edu) in the Mustang Success Center.
  • First-Year Transfer Students: Complete PolyLearn and attend Transfer Success Program.  For more information please contact Gina Salazar (glsalaza@calpoly.edu) in the Mustang Success Center.
  • Second-Year & Beyond, who are on Academic Probation for the FIRST time: Complete “CAFES Academic Probation, Level 1” PolyLearn course. For more information please contact CAFES Advising at cafes_advising@calpoly.edu
  • Second-Year & Beyond, who have been on Academic Probation 2 or more times: Complete “CAFES Academic Probation, Level 2” PolyLearn course. For more information please contact CAFES Advising at cafes_advising@calpoly.edu
