The Early Alert for Student Success program will continue again this fall semester.  If you are new, or unaware of how the Early Alert for Student Success program works, please contact Dave Decker to discuss how the program operates. The intention of this program is to ensure that students are aware of the services and programs available on campus that can help them succeed.  It also demonstrates that we, as a campus, care about their success.  As you prepare your course outlines and syllabi for the fall semester, I encourage you to incorporate assessment early in the semester.  This helps both the student and the university in understanding student academic progress.  

If you encounter a student who is potentially 'at-risk' with respect to academic progress, be sure to meet with him/her to discuss his/her progress AND send a referral to advisingalert@unb.ca. 

 Common signs of 'at-risk' behaviour (or performance) include: 

  • Failure to submit assignments or quizzes;
  • Low performance on a test or assignment (“D” or  “F”);
  • Failing to attend class or labs; and,
  • Any other indicator or behavior you believe could be detrimental to student success.
