Academic progress checks come out during the 5th and 8th week of every semester. Progress checks are a way for professors to communicate about student’s progress in regards to grades, attendance, and other key areas. Academic Progress Checks are intended to help improve performance in and out of class in order to obtain the most success in the course before the final exam. Students will receive their progress checks via their Georgetown College email.
Dates for Academic Progress Checks for the Spring 2015 semester are February 9th and March 9th.
What do I do if I received a progress check?
We always recommend talking with the professor who sent the check. Speak with them before or after class, or you may need to set up a separate meeting during their office hours. You can discuss the details of your check and ask for suggestions on how to improve.
You can attend group tutoring sessions or request a peer tutor through the portal.
You may receive a text or email message from Alex or Betsy and be asked to visit the Office of Academic Success in person – don’t panic! This is just a way for us to have a conversation beyond a text message. Just stop by the third floor of the Student Center between the suggested times to update them on your classes.
