Early Warning Reports

The Early Warning program is designed for faculty to communicate with advisors on student attendance and students not showing signs of academic success in the classroom before a final grade is determined. This program is designed to help students devise a plan for better academic success with an advisor before consequential actions take place affecting the students standing at the university.

Faculty

The Early Warning System allows the University to identify undergraduate students who are either not attending class or are missing course success markers (i.e. missing assignments, low grades on quizzes or exams, or lack of participation). Only students who are identified by their instructors as having difficulty in class should be included in the Early Warning program.

We are currently transitioning to a new platform for Early Warning and Anytime Alerts. In Fall 2021, a new process will be implemented. From August 2nd, 2021 through the beginning of Fall 2021, faculty can submit concerns or alerts to Kelsey Parker (academicsuccess@umich.edu) or the student’s assigned advisor (if known).

In your email, please include the course number, reason for alert, and details about the concern so that it can be appropriately managed.
 

Students

Things to know about the Early Warning Program:

  • This program is designed to help students succeed!

  • Your instructors will file an early warning to inform the Office of Student Life and Academic Advising so that they may reach out to you and provide additional academic support. 

  • Students who receive a Warning message will need to meet with a Success Coach from the Office of Student Life or an Academic Advisor from their assigned advising office.

Why would I get an Early Warning?

Students will receive a message regarding an Early Warning if they are not attending class and/ or not showing signs of academic success.

What happens if I get an Early Warning?

When you get an early warning you should schedule an appointment with the Office of Student Life or your advising office to discuss opportunities for academic support and decide upon the best course of action.

Will this go on my transcripts or permanent record?

Early warnings do not affect your standing in the university; however this notification is to alert you that you are at risk of a failing grade and should be taken seriously.
