Things to know

As you get started, here are a couple of things we thought you should know. You may get notified with a flag, kudos, or referral, here's what they mean:

  • Flag - a message that your professor sends to a student when there is a concern about  attendance or academic performance.
  • Kudo - a compliment or praise for something well done! It typically recognizes a great job or improvement.
  • Referral - lets the student know that they should go to a specific office on campus to get some help.  For example, if a student is struggling in a class, the professor might refer them to the Learning Center for some tutoring.
