Before sending alerts, it is highly recommended that you tell your class that you will be sending out alerts and the basis for sending them (e.g. quiz grades, first exam grades, etc.)
Alerts should only be sent to students who are in danger of receiving a D or F in the course.
Finding your FYI Class Lists
Log into myUMBC and under the “topics” section, click Faculty Center.
Under that section, look for a link that says “First Year Intervention Reporting” and click that link.
Sending Alerts to Students
Click the box next to the student’s name to select the student, then click “send alerts” to send the alerts for that section.
When you are done sending alerts for your section, click “complete” to lock that section.
If you would like to send alerts to students in your class that are not in the FYI group, click the box next to “Show all students in this class”
Things to Remember
- Alerts CANNOT be unsent! Make sure that you are sending alerts to the right students. In case you alerted the wrong student, please contact them and let them know it was sent erroneously.
- You can send alerts until the end of the reporting period. Once you click “complete” for any class or “complete all” for all of your lists, you will be locked out and unable to send alerts for those sections. You will not be able to click “complete” or “complete all” until the last week of the of the alert period.
- Alerts can be sent to any student in your class, including non FYI eligible students. Click “Show all students” to see your entire class roster.
