Early Alert System‎‎


In collaboration with the Office of Student Retention and Completion and the Office of the Registrar, the university is implementing a Student Success Attendance and Early Alert System during the 2021-2022 Academic Year.  Early Alert is a proactive, student-centered system of communication between faculty, staff, and academic advisors that facilitates the identification of students who appear to be struggling in the academic setting.  The goal of the system is to provide students with resources and support early in the semester to aid them in their success at the university.
