What is Early Alert?
Early Alert is Selkirk's online referral system created to help connect students who may be facing challenges in their courses or programs with the appropriate college services. Often, academic difficulties are linked to other issues in a student’s life and can result in poor attendance, low exam results or stress and anxiety. The earlier these issues are addressed, the greater the student’s chances of success.
Who can use it?
Any Selkirk employee who becomes aware of concerns about a student's ability to succeed in his or her program may submit the simple online form. The student will then be contacted by a member of the Early Alert Team and referred to a member of Student Access and Support. You can access the online form when it is active.
The Early Alert Program focuses on the first 5 weeks of the semester. Instructors are encouraged to evaluate students early in the semester to help identify those who may need extra support. This winter, Early Alert is now closed. Support is available for students throughout the year; however, focusing on the first five weeks can help students make changes that may improve their performance before they fall too far behind.
