Early Alert System
The goal of the Learning Resource Center (LRC) is to improve the quality, consistency, and availability of academic support services to students. As part of this initiative, faculty complete student early alert referrals to help students get the services they need and promote retention.
When should I complete a student early alert referral?
SRC faculty are encouraged to reach out to students (when possible) prior to submitting an Early Alert Referral. In cases when the student doesn’t respond or needs additional support, an early alert should be submitted. Below is a list of situations which all constitute a need for a referral submission.
- Labeled “inactive” – New students who haven’t completed the mandatory new Student Orientation course in Canvas will be “inactive” in the People tab.
- Not participating – When class participation is required and the student is not engaging.
- Not attending class – If a student has missed 2 consecutive class periods or doesn’t have frequent online activity.
- Excessive tardiness – When a student has been consistently late or leaving early.
- Not completing assignments and homework – After 2 missed/late assignments.
- Difficulty with coursework – When a student isn’t earning a C or better.
- Low test/quiz scores – After the first quiz/test and the student scored below a C.
- Appears to lack motivation – Student doesn’t appear to be giving their best effort.
- Other/personal – When a student is struggling with any issue that is preventing them from being successful in the classroom.
