Academic Information and Policies

The Manual of Academic Policies and Procedures

For information about University policies on the following topics, consult the Manual of Academic Policies and Procedures (MAPP) in the department office or the Office of the Dean of the school/college, or online at


The Academic Alert (formerly Academic Performance Warning) is available for use after the first full week of classes each semester, and should be used for attendance issues, missing work, poor grades, or behavior problems. The Alert is initiated by an instructor online and automatically informs the student’s advisor and the college’s dean's office of the problem that the student is having in a particular course. An email is also sent automatically to the student informing him/her that an Academic Alert was sent to his/her advisor,. The email encourages the student to see the instructor so that they can work on the issue together. Instructors are able to access the Academic Alert function as a menu option from the Student Success Collaborative which can be accessed via the Faculty Tab on the Self Service Center. Please contact Irwin Nussbaum, System Administrator for the Student Success Collaborative, via email at, or by calling x 7904 if you have any questions or need training.

Entering Grades

All grades should be entered using the Self-Service Center. Paper grade forms are no longer issued.

Course Evaluations

The University of Hartford has a standard course evaluation form, and some departments have their own forms as well. To find out the procedures for course evaluations in your department, contact your department chair.
