Let campus professionals know
of a student encountering difficulties

Our new “Help a Zip” program is up and running!  Anyone on campus, including students, may now alert a team of professionals about a student who is having difficulties.

Visit the Help a Zip referral page at www.uakron.edu/referral.
Examples of issues that can be reported include:

  • missed assignments,
  • poor grades on exams, assignments and projects,
  • poor attendance,
  • personal problems
  • financial issues and more!

There are also resources on the site to assist you in working with students on your own. Look for more retention and student-success resources to be added to the site in the coming months.
