Academic and Career Advising

Early Academic Alert Notifications (EAAN)

An Early Intervention Program for the Success of Our Students

Dear Student,

Salt Lake Community College has implemented a system to help you succeed in your courses. It is called Early Academic Alert Notification. The Academic and Career Advising office monitors the Early Alert Notification. The purpose of this program is to connect students with support services necessary for academic success. Since the faculty sees the students’ progress during the semester, it is natural to identify the students who appear to be having the most difficulty in class. For example, if your class instructor is a participant of this program, and considers that you are in academic difficulty, he or she may refer you to Academic and Career Advising. Then, you may be contacted by one of our advisors via email or phone to help you find strategies to help you achieve your academic goals for the course. If you are contacted, remember to contact your professor to identify relevant expectations outlined in the course syllabus. You may want to contact your program advisor for further advice.

Dear Faculty,

The Academic and Career Advising office monitors the Early Alert Notification. This systems' purpose is to connect students with support services necessary for academic success. Since the faculty sees the students’ progress during the semester, it is natural to identify the students who appear to be having the most difficulty in class. We recommend that faculty first attempt to contact the student as you are the best resource to assist students. If there hasn't been a change in the student performance or if you feel that a contact from Advising would also be beneficial, please use the Early Academic Alert Notification.
