Submitting Alert Notifications

ALERT notifications are used to provide a student with feedback in their classes.  Please remember that ALERTS and comments are seen by the students.  Reasons for submitting an Alert include the following:

  • Attendance Concerns
  • Lack of engagement in class
  • Missing/Late assignments
  • Low quiz/Test scores
  • Time Management Risks
  • Kudos!  You are doing great!

Early in the Semester (Weeks 2 & 3)

Remind students that they have resources to help them be successful while in school (College Success Zone). Encourage them to keep up with their assignments now so they can finish strong and complete the semester.

Week 7

Week 7 is critical for students who MUST improve or will need to withdraw by the deadline. Encourage students to begin making appointments with their assigned advisors for their next semester classes.

Just Before the Withdraw Deadline

All students need to be reminded of the last day to withdraw from a class and earn a grade of “W”. This is especially important for those students who are not going to pass the class. You can also use this time to encourage priority registration for the next semester.
