Early Alert Program
ASU is committed to providing a personal education for each of our students, and the Early Alert Program is a key part of this goal.
When faculty are concerned about a student’s academic performance, they are encouraged to make use of the Early Alert Program. Early Alert assesses the student’s situation, offering support and providing referrals to resources on campus.
Early Alert risk factors include:
- Poor class attendance/tardies
- Missing, incomplete or poorly completed homework assignments
- Multiple low test scores or grades that lead you to believe the student is at risk of failing
- Absence of course material (text books, paper, etc.)
Early Alert Process
- The Early Alert coordinator initiates an email campaign early each semester via GradesFirst. Faculty can also generate an Early Alert report in RamPort, under the Work Life tab and in the Faculty Advising Services channel. The form is labeled “Early Alert.”
- An advisor contacts the student by telephone, email and/or postcard.
- The advisor counsels the student and provides information on:
- Supplemental Instruction
- Tutoring meeting times and dates
- Academic Advising
- Career Development
- The student is also given the contact information of the referring professor and encouraged to contact him/her as soon as possible.
