Early Warning Information for Faculty and Teaching Staff  

The Attendance and Early Warning Report System is a great way to notify students if you have concerns about their attendance, academic performance (including test grades and class participation) or if you'd like to encourage them to visit the Center for Student Achievement for a personalized academic consultation.

Early Warning reports are now submitted via Navigate. To log on to Navigate, please visit

Submitting a report for your student is quick and easy! Just log on to Navigate and, click “Issue an Alert”, choose the reason, associated course (if applicable), add additional comments, and submit.

    What is the Early Warning Process?

  1. An instructor visits and submits an Alert.

  2. The student immediately receives an email notifying him/her of the instructor's concerns. Any information from checked boxes on the form are included in the student's email. Notes that the faculty members write on the form are not included in the automatic email.

  3. Depending on the type of concern and recommendations made by the faculty member, the Center for Student Achievement may contact the student for follow-up. We begin by contacting the student via personal phone calls. If we cannot reach the student, we try other methods of contact, which may include emails, letters, or even visits (if the students lives on campus).

  4. If/When the Center for Student Achievement makes contact with the student, we will update notes on the early warning report that we received. Faculty can log on to Navigate and view update by choosing a student and clicking “Staff Alerts”.

  5. Faculty members are also encouraged to follow up with students and the Center for Student Achievement if they have any questions or concerns.

Faculty and Staff members who have concerns about students can always contact the Center for Student Achievement at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
