Early Alert System To Increase Student Retention
Thanks to the Committee on Retention Efforts (CORE) and Information Technology Services, an Early Alert System (EAS) has been integrated with the class roster in Self-Service Banner. The roster now provides instructors with the ability to check a box to report students’ absences, incomplete assignments, and/or other issues that may affect their academic performance and thus their retention. Submitting an alert triggers an email to staff in the residence halls, the Student Success Center, or other support units who are trained to help students address issues that might prevent them from returning to EIU.
A list of “Frequently Asked Questions” about the EAS will be available on the CORE website at http://castle.eiu.edu/core/.
