Mission and Goals of the Early Alert Process
Cuyahoga Community College is committed addressing student needs with centralized, coordinated, and caring development interventions. Many times, these needs first present themselves in the classroom environment, whether in-person or virtual. As such, the Early Alert process is designed specifically for instructional faculty members to report student needs to the Student Success Specialists at each campus.
Early Alerts are accessible only by instructional faculty members and address issues and concerns which present themselves in the classroom environment. Early alerts are received by the Student Success Specialists at the various campuses and outreach is conducted to students in a timely manner.
Example behaviors which may warrant an Early Alert report include:
- Attendance issues
- Academic performance
- Online participation
- Challenging circumstances
At times, concerns detailed in an Early Alert may be referred to the Behavior Intervention Team for continued support beyond that semester or course. The Early Alert process is not connected to the Student Conduct process of the College and is not a direct service to students.
