It is that time of the semester to start submitting early alerts for students you are concerned about!


Who should submit Early Alerts? 

Early alerts are not just for faculty, ALL faculty and staff should submit alerts if there is a student of concern.


How do I submit an Early Alert? 

Alerts are submitted in “The Nest”. Please use these instructions if you need assistance.


When should I submit an Early Alert? 

Submit alerts EARLY and OFTEN! Some common alerts include consecutive absenses without prior notification, missing meetings regularly, can’t get a hold of the student via email or phone, health concerns that could a impact a student’s ability to succeed, external factors that are impacting a students work load or quality, distruptive behavior in class or during events / meetings, change in behavior or appearance of a student, poor performance on tests / projects , or any other general concerns you observe.

The EARLIER you submit an alert, the more successful the intervention is. DON’T wait until the last week of class to submit an alert. Once you notice a concern, submit an alert.
