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. For Fall 2021, we will be piloting a new system coordinated through Salesforce.

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 Academic Advising and the Office of Academic Success so that they may reach out to you and provide additional academic support. 

  • Students may receive an early warning message or task in their portal, directing them to talk to their professor, advisor, or the Office of Academic Success.

Why would I get an Early Warning?

Students would 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 may receive an email with instructions, tasks in your portal, and/or receive outreach from your advisor or the Office of Academic Success.

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.
