The Early Alert System is designed to improve student retention by putting the students in contact with the appropriate campus resources in order to assist them in meeting their educational goals at Campbell University.
Faculty and staff can contribute directly to students’ success by creating an alert for students who are performing poorly in their academic work, fail a test, are chronically absent from class, are exhibiting disruptive behavior or are having difficulty adjusting to the demands of school.
The College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (CPHS) is committed to the retention and graduation of its students and providing a learning environment that is conducive to student success. The Early Alert System is available to help ensure that every student is able to take full advantage of the educational support services available. Faculty and staff members may also refer students who are having personal or financial issues that could potentially inhibit student success. The Early Alert will assist in preventing academic distress by facilitating timely interventions and utilizing academic recovery resources as early as possible.
The Early Alert is to be used by faculty and staff to notify the College’s coordinator for academic support services. Contacting students early greatly increases their chances for success in class and college as a whole. However, intervention at any time is critical and this procedure is intended as an additional tool, not a substitute for instructor/student discussions. The coordinator will encourage students to speak with their instructors, as well as refer them to campus services for assistance.
When submitting an alert, please include as much detail as possible; but keep in mind that the student will be copied on the early alert. Referring faculty will receive an automatic web confirmation. The Early Alert is sent via email to the student, the coordinator for academic support services and the person who initiated the alert.
Students referred to the Early Alert program are contacted via email by the coordinator for academic support services to discuss the issue, set an appointment and/or develop an academic success plan. As part of that plan, the CUCPHS Coordinator may refer students to other campus offices as appropriate. Ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to follow up and take advantage of the resources and referrals made available to them.
