Early Alert Student Information
What is Academic Early Alert?
The Academic Early Alert program is designed to identify
students who are having academic difficulty. Once an early alert is received, the Academic Early Alert Leadership Team
will contact the student and discuss resources for success.
Why did I get a referral?
An employee at Viterbo University noticed you might benefit
from academic assistance and submitted an online referral form to the Academic
Early Alert Leadership Team. The reason
for the referral may have been one or more of the following:
- Performance not at course level
- Struggles to keep pace with the class
- Excessive absences/habitual tardiness to class
- Not performing well on tests
- Poor attitude and/or disruptive classroom behavior
- Low or no engagement in the classroom (sleeping in class, talking, texting, etc.)
- Pattern of late or missed assignments
- Personal/health/social concerns that impact academic performance
Does a referral mean I am failing a class?
Receiving a referral does not necessarily mean you are
failing a class. You might have been
referred for a number of reasons.
Is an Early Alert put on my permanent academic record?
No. Referrals are
part of the Early Alert system and are not part of your permanent record.
What should I do if I
am contacted about an Early Alert?
First of all, remember, you are not "in trouble." We are here to help you be successful in your
educational experience. If you are
contacted with an alert, please respond as quickly as possible.
