All Alert checks are conducted through the Student Success Manager (SSM) system. SSM is a web-based student performance monitoring system that provides automated student services and communication between faculty, students, and support staff. At UL Lafayette, the SSM system is used to notify students at key times throughout the semester if they are potentially at-risk of failing a course. As identified by faculty and staff, automated email alerts are sent directly to students’ University email with important resources for academic improvement. Certain student populations may also receive outreach from Academic Advisors with additional one-on-one help.

Students should contact the Academic Success Center in Lee Hall, Room 115, immediately if they receive an email identifying them as academically at-risk by their professor in order to set up an Academic Improvement Plan. Additionally, students should take advantage of free tutoring and peer academic coaching on topics such as: time management, note taking and study tips provided by The Learning Center. Students may also use SSM as a way to help streamline questions they may have about tutoring, scholarships, financial aid or just getting help in general.
If you have any questions on using SSM, please send an email to StudentSuccessManager@louisiana.edu
