Using Course Action Notices
Course Action Notices (CAN) are a communication tool that sends messages between instructors and students and includes students’ academic advisors. Using Course Action Notices helps identify situations when students may need help.
Students may send absence notices notifying their instructors when they need to miss class due to extenuating circumstances. Submitting an absence notice does not excuse students from their course obligations. Students access Course Action Notices through a link on Path@Penn.
Instructors may send support notices notifying students when their performance in class is concerning. Support notices may include guidance on who to consult with for help. Students should follow up with the instructor and/or their academic advisor when they receive a support notice. Instructors access Course Action Notices through a link on Courses@Penn.
Students with questions about Course Action Notices should consult their academic advisor.
Instructors with questions about Course Action Notices should consult with the Center for Teaching and Learning or their dean’s office.
