Early Referral Process

Personal, academic and/or financial problems can place students at risk of failing a course. The purpose of the Early Intervention Process is to provide early identification and intervention for students at risk for a variety of reasons. This Process is designed to support both students, faculty and staff. The early referral form will be submitted electronically to the individuals as indicated on the form to either Academic or Student Affairs staff for follow-up.
