The Early Alert program is a faculty-initiated success and retention program.

Faculty should continue to be the first contact with a student who might have an issue. However, if their attempts are not successful, faculty may report their concerns regarding a student via the Early Alert tool in iStar.

The referrals are received by the Academic Success Center Advisor, who can assist and provide campus resources.
