Project Success: Early Alert Referral Program

Every fall and spring semester the Student Success Center initiates Project Success. During the first 8 weeks of the semester, this program provides early intervention and academic coaching to students who have been referred by an instructor because they are having difficulty in a particular class. Students are invited to work one-on-one with an academic coach on issues such as learning style assessment, time management, and study skills.

We recommend you speak to your student first. If the issue is not resolved, submit an online referral.

Please refer students who:
  • Have excessive absences within the first eight weeks of the semester
  • Need assistance with study skills, such as reading critically, taking and organizing notes, and preparing for tests.
  • Struggle with motivation, concentration, or test anxiety.

Once we receive the referral, we will contact the student to offer academic support and assistance. A status update will be emailed to the instructor within two weeks.

Referral Deadline: We ask that you make a referral by March 6, 2015. After this date, students can meet with an academic coach by making an appointment online or by calling 256.824.2478.
