Early Alert

Early alert is a formal, proactive program designed to identify students exhibiting similar characteristics of students that do not persist. Research shows the earlier an at-risk student is identified, the better the prognosis for their success. It is with this knowledge that Early Alert to date is based on the availability of data within our systems along with diagnostic testing, (math readiness and non-cognitive survey), and then analyzing the data to determine which factors contribute to students at risk for attrition. This data is gathered as early as the admissions process with admission grades/averages and demographic information and as additional information is collected (i.e. participation in summer programming, diagnostic testing, etc.) it is being added to the early alert report and the student’s risk level is recalculated.
