EARLY ALERT

AT CU DENVER


​​EARLY ALERTS​​​​
 

Early alert at CU DENVER 

CU Denver has started using the Navigate and retention platform to implement Early Alert. Faculty and advisors will be able to use the platform to communicate about student needs and ensure our students recieve the support they need to succeed. 

If you have any questions please contact us at studentsuccess@ucdenver.edu 

 

EARLY ALER​TS

74% of public universities nationwide use an early alert system. Why? Because it’s a way of caring for students that has the result of increasing student GPA, continuation, and completion. Student non-attendance and poor early grades are proven predictors of attrition.  With Early Alerts, faculty can  identify students  that are missing classes or not performing well and then support staff can reach out to them, the result is more students completing courses and finishing degrees.  This is a high impact practice that we will continue to utilize as we track the impact of Early Alert on retention and graduation.

    What is Early Alert ?

The Early Alert program is a referral program for faculty, staff, students, and parents who are concerned about the physical, emotional, academic or personal health of a University student. The Early Alert Program can assess the situation, offer support, and provide referrals to the breadth of resources on-campus. 

How does Early Alert help faculty? 

Early Alert assists faculty in partnering with campus resources to best assist students in academic difficulty whom need additional support on campus. Early Alert is an added layer to the efforts of the professor to contact and offer aid to a student.

How does Early Alert help students?

Early Alert helps students by connecting them to useful resources that will support them in their current situation. Efforts will be made to personally reach out to students by campus partners. Those partners consist of tutoring support offices, academic advisors and student success staff.

What can I do if I am concerned about the behavioral or mental health of a student?

How is this alert resolved?

For Fall 2018 the student success team will be monitoring the alerts and getting the right support staff and academic advisors to reach out to the student. In Spring 2018 Navigate will automatically send a referral to the correct support office and faculty will be able to monitor the progress on their home screen.
