Academic Alert Reporting

The office of Academic Services manages the Academic Alert Reporting system, collaborating with the campus community to address concerns and support students. 

Please complete the Academic Alert Form at any time for students of concern, especially those who are falling behind in a course. If you have any questions or need additional information, please reach out to any member of the Academic Services team at (901) 321-3758 or

Alerts are assigned to the Academic Services team by student last name:


Academic Alert Flow Chart


(sent within 24-48 hrs of alert)

  1. An Academic Services Staff member emails the student, stating that the instructor of a specific course is concerned about their Attendance, Participation, Performance, and/or Progress.
  2. The student is instructed to schedule an appointment with the AS Staff member and encouraged to contact their faculty advisor.
  3. The student’s faculty advisor is copied on the email.

The Intervention Cycle

(may take 1-2 weeks depending on the student’s response)

  1. The intervention cycle begins with notification email that instructs student to schedule an appointment with the Academic Services Staff member.
  2. The AS Staff member will follow up by calling the student if he/she does not schedule an appt. or respond to the notification email within 24 hours. If no contact is made, we leave a voicemail message (if available) and send the student an e-mail requesting them to make contact with us.
  3. If the student initiates follow-up to the email or phone call, the conversation determines whether or not we can support the issue via phone or if the student should come in for an in-person meeting. Appropriate actions are determined and taken accordingly.
  4. If the student does not initiate a follow-up within 24 hours of the second attempt, they are contacted again via phone and/or email.
  5. If the student still does not initiate a follow-up within 24 hours of the third attempt, the AS Staff member will request additional assistance (ex: outreach from faculty advisor, dean of the student’s dept., or Dean of Academic Services).
  6. If all attempts to contact the student are unsuccessful, the case is closed with a designation of “no reply from student”.

**Efforts to contact students include phone and CBU e-mail account**
