In my last semester at UC Berkeley, I failed a major requirement and ended up not graduating due to a mental health crisis. Prior to that semester, I had a 3.89 GPA.
Due to the failure, I was notified that I had been placed on academic probation for the following semester (Fall 2018). However, I ended up retaking the class a couple years later through Cal’s extension school (not as a matriculated undergrad) so I was not subject to aforementioned academic probation mandates.
I plan to write a GPA addendum. The question I have here is whether this is something I should address in a character and fitness response as well? One of the questions on an application is whether I have ever been subject to academic probation.
If so, how should I go about explaining this?
