What is FACT?

The Faculty Advisor Communication Tool (FACT) is Northeastern University’s early-warning tool to facilitate communication between faculty and advisors to identify and support struggling students. Early identification of struggling students and other issues that could affect their academic performance helps us ensure they are connected with the best options and resources (e.g. tutoring, advising) to be able to succeed.

*Note:  Instructors in GSE are not required to participate in FACT use, but will receive requests to submit reports for students who have been flagged as at risk of academic probation or dismissal.
