Early Alert Referral Program

The Warrior Center for Student Success, Equity and Inclusion uses an early alert referral program, to assist at-risk undergraduate students. Faculty can refer students to this program.

It is vital to identify at-risk students early enough in their academic career to make a difference in their college success. If students are having trouble meeting academic standards, faculty can direct students to their academic adviser for help. Excessive absences, poor exam marks, a lack of participation, a low mid-term average, and other factors can lead to an "early alert referral". Success Coaches follow up with focused outreach and applicable interventions after a student is referred. Positive feedback on academic performance is also available to students.
