*TIPS*
• Raise only one flag at a time. A student who is an “attendance concern” is also likely attending class is also likely not submitting assignments and in danger of failing. There is no need to raise multiple flags.
• Time permitting, it does help advisors to provide notes on missing assignments. After flagging a student, you may click the note icon to leave a note:
