Academic Alert

Request Support for Undergraduate Students

The academic alert referral service provides faculty with an outlet for requesting support for undergraduate students who are struggling academically. An Academic Development and Recovery advisor will reach out to the student within two days and follow up with the faculty member submitting the report with an update on the progress of the outreach.

  • Missing classes regularly throughout the course of the semester.
  • Poor performance on homework, quizzes, exams or presentations.
  • Low engagement or participation.
  • Poor quality of writing.
  • Gaps in academic skills such as struggling with time management, reading or note taking.

Students will be notified from whom and why the referral was made. Any information you provide may be shared with the student. As such, observations should be objectively stated.

Distressing, Disturbing, Disruptive, or Dangerous Behavior

If the student presents distressing, disturbing, disruptive, and dangerous behaviors, a report should be submitted to the CARE team, instead of submitting an academic alert. If this is an emergency and/or there is a potential threat to an individual, please contact police at 9-1-1 or campus police and security at (208) 426-6911.
