Academic Alert

Academic Alert: New Support System to Keep Students on their Path to Success

Austin Community College (ACC) is committed to student success and retention. If a student stops attending, misses assignments, tells you they can’t pay their rent, or does poorly on tests, faculty can use the Academic Alert System as an intervention tool.  Academic Alert is a feature of Inspire, a comprehensive student support system, that allows ACC faculty to easily and quickly communicate with students needing extra support. Faculty can identify students who are having challenges and connect them with academic guidance specialists to help them resolve issues and access resources to help students persist. It can also be used to commend students who are doing well or showing improvement in class. Alerts will go directly to the student and/or the assigned guidance specialist.

The goal is to quickly identify the types of support a student may need to get on track to successfully complete the course and motivate students to continue to excel.
