Faculty Experience

Faculty Experience iconFaculty Experience is MSU’s early warning system that allows faculty and instructors to submit concerns of potential poor academic performance and/or behavioral warning signs that pose a threat to retention.

The Office of Retention and Academic Advising is the primary gatekeeper of academic alerts submissions. Student Affairs, specifically the Dean of Students, is the primary gatekeeper for behavioral (or non-academic) retention alerts.

If you have concerns about a student, please submit an alert through Faculty Experience and retention staff will follow up with the student.
