Provides information on attendance criteria and how to create an Early Alert and Progress Report.

Early Alerts

What is an Early Alert?

  • An Early Alert identifies students who have not participated in class (refer to Attendance/Participation Criteria) within the first week of the semester.
  • An Early Alert is a way to assist in retaining students.
  • The Advisors will contact students who receive an Early Alert prior to the census date.  

When should an Alert be created?

  • ASAP if a student has NOT attended within the first 3 days of a face-to-face class.
  • Within the first week when you have identified a student who has not participated in an online class.  

After the first week, use the Progress Report. 

Behavior and improper conduct incidents should be sent to the BIT team (  If you have questions about Alerts, contact your dean/director.
