If so, we want to HELP YOU!

The early academic alert system targets these gateway courses, traditionally taken by many of our first- and second-year students.

Early in the semester, faculty will submit grades for struggling students, typically those who are at a level of C- or lower. We are targeting students who are not part of EOP, ELI, ISSS, Student Athletics Success Center, and TRiO/SSS and, consequently, who would not otherwise be contacted to meet with an advisor to get appropriate help.

How will you be contacted?

Students who are at a C- or lower will be emailed by the Discovery Program about their status and to make an appointment to discuss an effective plan of action.

We will address study habits, time management, taking advantage of all of the course specific resources (e.g. Calc help room, Chem help room, etc.), and getting the student signed up for a tutor through the Center for Learning and Teaching, which is located in the College in the Woods Library.

Can you contact the Discovery Program to set up a meeting even if you did NOT get contacted through the Early Academic Alert System?

YES! If you are feeling frustrated with your grades, worried about failing, have low motivation, missing classes, late with assignments and are just at the point of screaming, PLEASE contact the Discovery Program and set up a time to meet with us! Even if you do not have a C- or lower, but still feel you may need some guidance and help, we can help walk you through the process of getting back on track.
