Steps for Success:
We have included a suggested timeline for submitting alerts, so that we can effectively reach students and provide intervention strategies before it is too late.
The chart below is the university's referral guide. It was created by the Health, Counseling, and Student Wellness office to assist faculty and staff members with assessing their student of concerns situation and then referring them to the appropriate place on campus.
If you are ever unsure where to send your student, please feel free to use our referral form (link above) and we will then assess the student's situation and connect them to the appropriate resources.
In general, it is helpful for us to know if you have been in communication with the student as that helps us to frame the conversation should we be able to get in contact with them.
For Attendance Concerns - information about your attendance policy and/or number of days student has missed to this point or any other information that could assist us with giving the student direction on where to go from here.
For Academic Concerns – information about the student’s ability to still pass the course, your willingness to assist the student with understanding course material and/or your ability to accept late work for credit/grades.
For Personal Concerns – information about the student’s specific situation that you received directly from the student, list of any other resources on campus that you have referred the student to for assistance, and information as to whether or not you have disclosed to the student that we will be reaching out to them. You can also email us directly any information that you did not feel comfortable including in the alert on Navigate.
For Financial Concerns - information about if they still have a balance, cannot afford textbooks/access codes, need help understanding their financial aid awards
