For over a decade, colleges have relied on early alerts, submitted by faculty, to surface at-risk students and ultimately prevent them from slipping through the cracks. When successfully managed, early-alert programs can improve academic outcomes as well as retention and graduation rates. But too often, these programs have critical gaps that make them uncoordinated and inefficient.
Through our work with more than 500 Student Success Collaborative members, we uncovered the five building blocks of successful early-alert programs and strategies to bridge the gaps.
