Early Tiger Alert

Early Tiger Alert is an early alert and intervention program designed to help identify students who may need extra assistance in completing their classes and achieving overall academic success. There are a number of issues and obstacles that can derail students on their way to academic success, but research has demonstrated that faculty assistance in the early identification of these obstacles will help us make a significant difference in retention and persistence efforts.
