What is an Early Alert?
An early alert is a referral and support program to help identify and reach students at risk of academic difficulty or failure. The purpose of Early Alert is to reach students before they fail. Disability Support Services sends out Early Alert emails twice per semester. The first will come around week 6 and the second around week 10.
Why did I receive an early alert email?
When an instructor notices that you may be struggling, we ask that they reach out to you with their concerns by submitting an early alert.
What happens after the referral form is submitted?
When you receive an outreach early alert email you are encouraged to talk with your instructors and advisers, and to seek assistance in the Learning Commons.
Information collected through Early Alert does not become part of your permanent record.
Who do I contact in the Learning Commons for assistance?
Please visit the front desk or contact Jessica Stiles (916-577-2253 / email@example.com) or Andre Mendoza (916-577-2291 / firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns, regarding accessing academic supports.
