The mission of the Early Alert (EA) First-Year Experience (FYE) is to positively impact First-Time in College student good academic standing, retention, and graduation rates.

We provide a district-wide model of collaboration between, faculty, counselors, advisors, and support services. This collaboration guides students into structured program pathways improving positive outcomes.

FYE identifies potential issues that may prevent students from successfully completing courses, such as periodic absences/tardiness and low grades. Students receive alerts from faculty and advisors when potential problems are observed. Faculty work with EA advisors and peer academic coaches to address obstacles in students’ academic success. Students may receive referrals for tutoring, counseling, and other services to help them become more effective. The Early Alert Program provides a safety net for students making the transition to college through an integrated system of communication, support, and intervention that will establish a solid foundation throughout their college experience.
