Academic Alert

The University of Minnesota Morris is committed to the academic success of all students. UMM uses uses an early alert model to identify students who may be experiencing difficulty in the classroom or beyond. Concerns submitted by instructors or other UMM staff help students become aware of areas needing improvement, give advisers the necessary information to connect students to appropriate resources and opportunities, and identify students who may benefit from extra support across courses.

Types of Concerns

Concerns can be submitted for a wide variety of reasons. Submitting concerns at the first sign of difficulty gives students the best chance for improvement. Some common reasons for submitting concerns include:

Faculty Concerns (for students taking your course)

If you are teaching a course in the current semester, you will submit most of your concerns through APLUS. To submit a concern, log into APLUS select “Instructor View” in the top right corner drop down menu.

After you’ve submitted your concern, the student will receive an email outlining the general nature of the concern (example: Academic Performance: Attendance) and some suggestions for next steps. The student’s adviser also receives a notification of the concern.

Concerns of a personal nature do not generate automatic emails.
