Academic Status Report

An Academic Status Report (ASR) is a way for your instructor to communicate with you about how you are doing in the course. The real-time feedback from your instructor will encourage you to keep up the good work or seek support by contacting them or other ASU resources. Taking early action can help you succeed in class! You have many resources to help you get back on track.

Academic Status Reports (ASR) are a part of an early alert reporting system designed to give you helpful updates throughout the semester. Your instructor submits ASRs based on your performance in the class. An ASR can let you know if there are concerns related to your class performance, such as missing classes, missing assignments, or the quality of your work. If you are progressing well in class, you may receive a positive ASR that lets you know you are doing good work.

An ASR may include your current status or grade and may also include the reason(s) you are receiving an ASR, recommended actions (if needed), and any comments from your instructor. An ASR can inform you that you are doing well in the course or it can alert you that you need to take action to improve your class performance.

ASR notifications are visible on My ASU as a blue icon in your My Classes box next to the relevant class. When you click on the icon, you will see the details of the ASR, including your current status/grade. A notification message will also be sent to your ASU email account.

Yes! Your instructor can submit a positive ASR to let you know that you are progressing well in the class.

Do not ignore the ASR, but do not panic either. The purpose of the ASR is to alert you about your performance so you can take action and improve in the class. The first thing is to follow any actions recommended by your instructor. For in-person classes, be sure to attend class sessions. If you have missed or did poorly on assignments or quizzes, contact your instructor or TA. If there are other reasons that are affecting your class performance, contact your academic advisor (found in My ASU in the “Academic Support Team” box). They can discuss your situation and help provide additional support and resources. Remember: Your instructor sent the ASR because they want you to succeed. Please reach out to your instructor if you have questions or need assistance.

If the ASR says your current grade is “S – Satisfactory,” that is good news! Your instructor is letting you know that, at this point, you are performing satisfactorily in class. They may also include a reason, such as “Good Work.” If you have additional questions about your ASR, please reach out to your instructor.
