  • Academic Referrals

    jasper connect Login 

    The Manhattan College academic referral program is a collaborative, college-wide effort to identify and support students who exhibit difficulties with academic rigor at the college level. The referral program utilizes a software system called Jasper Connect which enables faculty and administrators across the college to support students by connecting them to the right resources at the right time. 

    Faculty are encouraged to submit academic referrals on any student who is struggling in a course by logging into Jasper Connect and submitting a referral.

    An "Early Alert" period is designated during the 3rd and 4th week of the semester to identify students before midterm time that would benefit from the academic intervention services provided by the Center for Academic Success. 


    Reasons for submitting an academic referral include:

    • poor class attendance
    • low scores on tests and/or quizzes
    • missing assignments
    • being unprepared for class
    • writing concerns

    The goal is to identify students who are in need of academic intervention services as soon as the faculty member notices a possible deficiency. The Center for Academic Success feels strongly that the sooner a student is identified as being in need of support, the better chance the student has of returning to good academic standing. 

  • Faculty Partnership in Writing Fellows & Supplemental Instruction Program

    The role the faculty play in the success of students is critical as we examine a team approach to producing positive learning outcomes for students who participate in supplemental instruction. In order to maximize the effects of the program, we ask the following of partnering faculty:

    • Allow the fellow to make brief periodic announcements
    • Regularly meet with the fellow to provide mentorship, support, and coaching to guide the structure of the fellow sessions
    • Provide course materials for fellow
    • Provide feedback to the CAS Academic Support Manager in the form of occasional surveys

    Request Supplemental Instruction Sessions

    Faculty are invited to request supplemental instruction sessions for their courses. Courses with high rates of D,F,W and I grades are typically only considered for SI.
