What does an alert to UCAP mean?

An alert to UCAP means that a faculty or staff member noticed that you were experiencing some challenges and because they cared about your well-being, referred you to UCAP for support.

Students do not have to be referred by a faculty or staff member. Any student on campus can contact our office for any reason and schedule an appointment with UCAP staff for support and guidance.

Most students receive an alert to UCAP for the following reasons:

  • academic concerns
  • personal concerns
  • financial concerns
What happens when I meet with UCAP?

At your appointment, UCAP staff will discuss your situation with you in detail and assist you in coming up with a plan to get back on track. 

UCAP staff may also refer you to other campus resources that may help you.
