What is an Early Alert? 
Definition: An early alert is an automated at-risk identification tool designed to help identify and react to retention challenges quickly and consistently.

We want our students to achieve academic success, as well as social and professional growth; therefore, we have implemented a program from Hobson's Retain to help identify students that may be at-risk due to the following alert types: Academic, Attendance, Financial, and Personal. Students who have been identified with an early alert by a faculty or staff member, will be notified by the Office of Student Success or a member of the Early Alert Intervention Team to discuss a plan of action and receive the help they need in order to succeed as an SMSU Mustang!
