Student Early Alert
Palm Beach State College is committed to providing opportunities for all students
to succeed. Early Alert is commonly used by numerous colleges and universities across
the country to support student success and completion.
At the heart of the Early Alert system is a desire to support the student with successful completion of their academic goal. The Early Alert system is an academic intervention tool designed to bridge the gap between the student and the resources.
EARLY ALERT Resources For Faculty
Thank you for choosing to incorporate Early Alert into your already diversified student success repertoire. The Early Alert system is a supplemental academic intervention tool for faculty and staff focusing on students at risk of failing or dropping out due a lack of utilization of college-wide supportive assistance services. Early Alert ensures access to Academic Advising and other free student resources such as referrals to the Student Learning Center (SLC), The Center of Student Accessibility, counseling center, panthers pantry, and much more. Early Alert facilitates connecting the identified student with the resources to increase student retention and completion.
Because this is a new system, please watch the Early Alert Training video with the embedded quiz.
For questions, pleas contact the starfish administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
