The Academic Alert System (AAS) provides an opportunity for faculty, staff, and other campus constituents to share any academic concerns they may have about undergraduate students with the Office of Academic Advising. Academic alerts are an opportunity to partner with the Office of Academic Advising to offer additional support to any student who may need it and is not intended to be a punitive measure for any reason. 

What Constitutes an Academic Concern?

It is helpful for us to receive any information about students who may be struggling academically or about students who may be experiencing personal difficulties that could affect academic performance. In the absence of more general concerns (i.e. excessive absences, lack of communication, etc.), we will accept information about but typically do not reach out to students based on one low exam grade or missing assignment. You may wish to give us a phone call prior to submitting an academic alert.

Who has access to the information I submit via the AAS?

The Office of Academic Advising makes note of academic alerts in our internal records and will only share this information with parties outside our office who have an educational need to know as defined by FERPA guidelines.

Remember that what you report here becomes part of the student’s record.  Please describe objective behaviors of concern and refrain from subjective interpretations of those behaviors. If you would like to discuss your concerns more fully, you are welcome to contact our office.
