Identify the Student’s Needs Early.

“Joe Cuseo (2011) identified academic disengagement, absenteeism, and mid-semester grades as some of the tangible indicators to warrant intervention for a student. These factors, if found at the right time, have been proven to have a positive effect on student performance in the classroom” (Winfield, 2018).

UBC’s Early Alert helps achieve this goal by helping faculty and staff provide more comprehensive support for students who are facing difficulties that put their academic success at risk. Learn more about Early Alert here:
