The Academic Early Alert program is used to identify and provide support to students who may not be meeting academic expectations. Early alerts help to identify challenges with academic effort, absences, class engagement, and test performance.
Goals of the Academic Early Alert are:
Provide students with early indications and understanding of their academic progress.
Improve student academic performance, retention, and persistence.
Enhance communication between students and faculty.
Create a meaningful and developmental relationship between students and their success coach.
Increase student usage of support services and tutoring as a tool for success.
Early Alerts are completed by faculty members for each student following the below schedule each semester.
Class Engagement and Academic Progress
The Early Alert Process
When a faculty member submits an early alert, a copy is sent to the student and their success coach. Success coaches will follow-up with each student to meet one-on-one and discuss a success plan for the class and the semester. The goal is that this early intervention will allow the student to take the necessary steps to perform well in the course.
Receiving an Early Alert
A student receiving the Early Alert is encouraged to take immediate action to ensure they succeed in their course.
Some suggested steps include:
Contact their Success Coach to develop a personalized success plan
Meet with their faculty member to discuss areas for improvement and additional support
Participate in the tutoring program or writing program
Seek other support services; such as counseling services or disability support services, if necessary
