Early Alert Information for Students
Early Alert was created by faculty at UW Oshkosh to help students better track their academic progress in their courses.
An email is sent out to all undergraduate students enrolled in 14 week courses during the 5th week of each semester. The email includes one of the following grade statements for each course;
- your current grade in this course is lower than a C
- you have not attended class regularly and your grade could be affected
- you have not attended class regularly and your current grade in this course is lower than a C
- your current grade in this course is a C or higher
- did not report any grade for you in this course-please note instructor participation is optional
Be aware that instructors are not required to participate in Early Alert. In these cases students should not assume they are doing OK, but rather should follow up with their instructor by email or during office hours to get their specific grade information.
