Early Alert: A Not-So-Serious Reminder of a Very Serious and Important Element of USP (Due by Wed.)
Early Alert: The Time Has Come! (Oct. 4-9)
Participation in the established Early Alert process is an important component of the 257 USP courses approved to be taught in this first year of the program. Students will receive information about grades, attendance, and resources as part of our effort to further fuel their academic success. We want to increase students' self-awareness and responsibility.
For the Early Alert, instructors indicate a current status for each student:
Early Alert is a relatively easy way to increase students' chance of success by providing them with clear information about tutoring and learning assistance, and encouraging them to seek these out.
~John Koker (COLS Dean)
Since beginning Early Alert, we have noticed a significant decrease in student drops and an increase in tutor requests.
~Lisa Danielson (Registrar) and Liz Whalley (Director of Academic Advising)
