SAILS: Early Alert

Student Assistance and Intervention for Learning Success (SAILS): Early Alert is a program of intervention and follow-up for students identified as having academic difficulties early in the semester.

SAILS: Early Alert is designed to:

  • Provide faculty with a method to identify at risk students.
  • Address difficulties that interfere with student success.
  • Refer students to appropriate college resources.
  • Assist students in becoming academically successful.
  • Form a collaboration between faculty and campus student services to provide an effective system of intervention to improve student retention and success.
  • Provide all faculty members with the opportunity to participate in the SAILS program.
