 Early Alert Program

The Early Alert Program at El Paso Community College rests on the collaborative efforts of faculty, counselors, advisors and academic support services. We are working together as a team in an involved, proactive, and supportive approach to increase student's academic success.

The purpose of the Early Alert Program is to identify and effectively intervene with students who are exhibiting at risk behaviors and to establish a referral process available to faculty; thus, increasing retention and reducing the number of students in academic probation and/or suspension. The Early Alert Program consists of intensive and comprehensive intervention strategies to teach students academic success skills and encourage positive academic behaviors. With the assistance of instructors, counselors and advisors will be able to assist students overcome obstacles and achieve their academic and personal goals.
