At-Risk Email Alerts
If you earn a D or an F in any class at the four-week mark, you and your advisor will be sent an at-risk email alert. These go directly to your LSUS e-mail account, so you'll want to check that account several times each week. (In fact, you'll want to check your LSUS e-mail account daily to make sure that you aren't missing messages from faculty, advising notes, and information on campus-wide activities!)
If you receive an at-risk email alert, you should take three steps immediately:
- Contact your advisor to make an appointment.
- Discuss your progress with the class instructor and ask for advice on how to improve your grade.
- Update your Steps for Success worksheet and see if you can identify any study skills or time management skills that need improvement.
Your success is important to your academic advisor. Never ignore an at-risk email alert or a request from your advisor to meet. Advising is an important tool that will help you meet your academic goals.
