Early Alert Program Information for Students
What is the Early Alert/Progress Report System?
Early Alert/ Progress Reports are notices your instructor submits when there is a concern about your performance in class. Early Alert/ Progress Reports may identify frequent absences, missed assignments or exams, or failure in a class. Students who receive Early Alerts/Progress reports will receive a letter in their communications center found in their MyTMCC student center.
If you receive an Early Alert/Progress report communication a designated staff member will contact you and you may be required to attend a workshop that will help you get back on track. This information will provide you insight so you can take the steps necessary to be successful in your course(s). If you are contacted about an Early Alert/ Progress Report, talk to your instructor right away to help you get back on track.
What steps should I take if I'm struggling in a course and need help to be successful?
- Talk to your instructor about the problem as soon as possible to get recommendations for how to improve in the course.
- Seek help through the many academic support services available to all students. TMCC provides a number of college services and resources FREE of charge to students. Services TMCC students may use include the tutoring and learning center, writing center, counseling, and the disability resource center.
- Meet with a counselor to help you identify possible options, including:
- Career options and career exploration
- Personal counseling
- Withdraw from the course in order to salvage your grade point average and free your time so you can do better in your remaining classes.
Be aware that withdrawing from a class could affect your financial aid status. All students receiving financial aid should consult with the financial aid office withdrawing from any class.
