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.
CU Denver has started using the SSC Campus student success 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.
