Early Alert

The Early Alert Program at Georgia State University seeks to increase retention and reduce progression risk by providing notification to individual students who display signs of academic distress on or before the first six weeks of the semester. The purpose of this program is to notify and support students who are demonstrating characteristics that hinder academic performance.

Characteristics may include:

  • Attendance issues
  • Lack of student engagement
  • Disruptive behavior
  • Insufficient performance in the course
  • Unsatisfactory grade at the midpoint of the semester

Faculty reporting of “at-risk” students through the Early Alert Campaign allows the Office of First-Year and Transition Programs to send notification to individual students regarding their academic performance. By participating in the program faculty will help Georgia State University affirm its commitment student success and retention.
