• Early Alert Program Description

    The CBC Early Alert Program (EAP) is an intrusive advising intervention program to which Faculty can report students to the Student Development staff when concerns of academic performance or disengagement are observed. The goal of the program is to help students succeed and achieve their educational goals. The EAP allows instructors to refer to Student Development those students whom they feel are having difficulties in class and can benefit from extra support. 

    By reporting an Academic Early Alert, CBC instructors note that the student is showing increasing signs of academic withdrawal and distress. By identifying students in need, the Student Development staff can work one-on-one with students to determine potential issues and make necessary academic or personal support service referrals. This process ensures that students receive needed help crucial to increasing academic motivation, developing tools for success, focusing academic achievement, and improving skills.
