Bobcat 360 Academic Updates
What is an academic update?
At two points each semester, the VPAA will send out a request for academic updates to faculty for students in selected groups. Faculty who have students in their courses will receive this request via email and can log in to Bobcat 360 to complete the update.
What happens as a result of the academic update?
The various people and programs that are interested in academic updates follow up with students identified through the update in the following ways:
- VPAA Communication:After each Academic Update, the VPAA contacts students who are identified as being at risk for failure to let them know of their status.
- Athletics: Coaches are notified of student-athletes who have been identified as high risk for failure. Those students are required to attend the Athletic Training Program.
- Student Success Services: TRiO students have been notified via phone or email of their status and have been offered assistance, as appropriate, which may include tutoring.
How do I complete an Academic Update?
Faculty will receive an email with a link to the Academic Update form. After logging
into Bobcat 360, click on the "Surveys" icon and you will see each of your classes
and their rosters. Choose the students with whom you have no concerns and click the
green button at the top and follow instructions. Then, click the remaining students
and choose the Complete Survey button at the top and follow the instructions.
