Early Alert

Fall 2017 - Spring 2018

We have created an online Early Alert Pilot program through Advise CRM. This will allow you to identify your students for academic alerts.  The alerts will send an automatic email to the students and alert the Student Success Center of the issue(s) in the following areas:

  • Commendable Effort
  • Distracted in Class - NO email sent
  • Inactivity in Course
  • Frequently Tardy - NO email sent
  • Low Grades (C- or lower)
  • Missing Assignments

The courses that we will be focusing on for the Spring 2018 Pilot are listed below:

  • CTA 206
  • ECO 101, ECO 105
  • EDU 203
  • FYE 101
  • PSY 101
  • MAT 205
  • NUR 303
  • SOC 101

Students who have been identified will receive the following notification(s) pertaining to the alert that was flagged:

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Student Success Center at 302.356.6995 or Hillary Strachan at hillary.j.strachan@wilmu.edu

Update - Effective January 16, 2018:

Dear Faculty,

As you are aware we will be piloting an Early Alert Program through Advise CRM. The following courses have been designated as pilots: MAT 205, FYE 101, ECO 101, ECO 105, PSY 101, SOC 101, CTA 206, NUR 303, EDU 203.

The program is essential to both students' and the University's success. Using Early Alert, you'll not only be identifying students at risk, but enabling the University to pro-actively assist them and you in improving their performance and confidence. You'll also be assisting the University in collecting and analyzing critical student performance data to improve student retention and graduation.

How will this work?

  • Faculty members will receive an email reminding them Early Alert is available in the Faculty Portal.  
  • Upon logging in via MyWilmU > Faculty Resources > Early Alert, you will have access to complete your alerts. You may submit alerts at any time during the semester.
  • That's all! The students will automatically receive an email based on your completion of the online alerts.

Am I required to do this?

Your participation in this effort is essential for the success of this program, and ultimately it contributes to the success of your students and the University.

Where can I find out more about this program?

Additional details, including specific instructions and video tutorials, are available on the MyWilmU Faculty Resources page. You can also contact the Student Success Center, located in DAC 219, at (302) 356-6995.

Thank you in advance for your participation in the Early Alert program.
