Academic advisors keep track of the individual academic progress of the students they assist. If your marks are cause for concern, the academic advisor may invite you for a consultation. You are also free to contact your academic advisor yourself. This should be done promptly if the need for contact arises. A timely discussion could prevent a (significant) delay in your academic progress.
