Course concerns at Franklin Pierce, the College at Rindge

Warning Sign

Rindge students, if you received an email about “course concerns” today, read it and then speak to your instructor within the coming week.

The Coordinator of Academic Advising and the Academic Services Center ask professors of 100- and 200- level classes to let us know if they have concerns about a student during the first four weeks of classes.  Concerns can be anything from missing one or two classes, not having the books, not doing well on a quiz, or just being really homesick.   We can make suggestions to help students or try to connect the student with resources on campus that can help them.  Students may not know about all the people and offices on campus who can assist them academically.  The course concern emails (also known as Early Alerts or ESI’s) help connect the dots.

So if you have an email like that, talk to your professor (even if you think you know why you received the alert).  Your instructor can tell you what you need to do to succeed in their course.
