All reports are reviewed by the Office of Student Conduct.
The Early Alert System is designed to assist faculty with concerns that may arise regarding students enrolled in their class. If a faculty member is concerned about a student’s academic performance, we suggest the faculty member begin by having a direct discussion with the student about the issue and exploring potential solutions together.
If the student is not making progress after that discussion and extra support from a Case Manager or Dean is warranted, please submit an Early Alert. These alerts can be submitted throughout the semester; however, please take this action when a concern is first noticed.
The types of alerts you can issue that may impact a student’s success include absences/tardiness; missing work/exams; needs tutoring; significant change in student’s behavior; concern for student’s emotional, mental, or physical well-being; or uncertainty of how to respond to a situation or a student or you are unclear who to contact but have concerns about a situation or a student.
For more information on how to submit an Early Alert, visit https://signon.stjohns.edu.
What happens next?
After submitting an Early Alert, you receive a confirmation email. For first-year students, the alert is forwarded to an Academic Advisor and Case Manager. For continuing students (i.e., second-, third-, and fourth-year students and graduate students), the alert is forwarded to an Advising Dean and the Dean of Students.
The Case Manager/Dean contacts the student to address the reported issue(s) and devise an action plan to resolve the matter. The student is encouraged to share a summary of the action plan with their professor; the Case Manager/Dean also follows up with the professor.
In rare instances, there are critical situations that demand immediate attention, such as when a student is experiencing severe depression or poses a risk of harm to themselves or others. In such cases, it is imperative to escalate these concerns.
