CARE / Early Alert

The CARE (Early Alert) program is a team effort by faculty, coordinators, and support staff to increase student retention, success, and completion rates.  We realize students encounter challenges throughout the course of the semester. The early alert program is most effective when a referral is submitted within the first three to four weeks of the semester however, a referral is welcome at any time.
