Hand Raise Alert
As a student, you now have another way to ask for help by submitting your own alerts through Navigate. This new feature is called a Hand Raise Alert. You can submit this alert at any time to indicate that you need help in one of the four areas.
After an alert is raised, you will receive an email letting you know which area you have been referred to. A representative from that area will contact you directly and get you connected with the resources you need.
I need help finding a club/organization/group/activity
Submitting this alert will refer you to the office of the Dean of Students. This office can help to connect you with clubs, organizations and groups across campus. They can also help you find specific activities and events happening all year-round.
I need a tutor for a course
Submitting this alert will refer you to the Learning Commons. The Learning Commons is a resource in the Jerome Library that helps students connect with tutors and academic help.
I have questions about dropping a class or changing a grade
Dropping a class or changing a grade can have negative impacts on important areas like financial aid, credit completion toward graduation and GPA. Submitting this alert will refer you to your Academic Advisor.
I am considering withdrawing from the University
Withdrawing from BGSU is a big decision and needs to be discussed further with an advisor. Submitting this alert will refer you to an Academic Advisor.
