Puget Sound has implemented an early alert system to provide support for students at risk for academic difficulty and attrition. Areas of academic concern may include:
Other areas of concern, which have an impact on academic performance, may be learning problems, financial problems, personal or family problems, or serious medical conditions.
If you have concerns about a student, please log into your Cascade class list and click on the Create an Academic Alert button. Upon receiving an alert form, a member of the Student Alert Group will contact the student to provide support and intervention and/or make an appropriate referral. Kelli Delaney, Assistant Director of Academic Advising, will intervene in more serious cases. Feel free to send an e-mail to Kelli Delaney or Joy Kiefer if you have additional questions.
