|Academic Early Alert & Intervention Program|
The TSC Academic Early Alert & Intervention Program allows faculty to identify students who need assistance because of poor academic performance, class participation, and/or attendance issues, and refer them to an Academic Advisor who can help the student access appropriate support systems. This type of intrusive advising has been demonstrated to be effective in increasing the retention and overall academic performance of a variety of high-risk students.
Providing intervention assistance early in the semester is critical to student persistence and completion. The earlier an academically at-risk student is identified, the better the prognosis for success. Therefore, the program targets ALL students, not just freshmen or students in specific academic programs, during the initial 4 weeks of the fall and spring semesters.
Course instructors should refer students for the following reasons:
Note: Both the course instructor and the advisor should explain that the referral does not mean the student will fail, nor will it be reflected on their academic transcript. The referral simply means that the instructor is concerned about certain specific issues that might be a roadblock to the student's success.

Important note: Before submitting form, read guildelines below.
The conversation with the advisor is meant to be a "wake-up" call. Together, student and advisor will identify the major sources of the student's academic difficulties and will discuss options to address those difficulties. The result of the conversation will be the implementation of a success plan for the student.
