Submitting an Academic Alert is a way for faculty and staff to alert the Center for Academic Enrichment (CAE) when students are experiencing academic difficulties.
While the Academic Alert system is a retention strategy, it is required that professors only use this tool when all other means of contacting the student has been unsuccessful.
Some reasons to file an academic alert include when a student:
- Frequently does not attend class
- Lacks engagement
- Earns a low grade and tutoring is recommended
CAE staff will review each academic alert to identify the best student success supports and connect with the student. In addition, academic advisors and athletic coaches will receive notification when a student receives an academic alert, so they may assist and provide support.
