Academic Alert System

Houghton College (NY)

Houghton College has implemented an "Academic Alert" system to better identify academic or social ‘at risk' students. Faculty members, residence hall staff, etc., inform the coordinator of a concern they may have about a student, and the coordinator then follows up with the student to resolve the challenge they are facing. This process is completed with discretion, so the privacy of the student is not violated, and has proven effective due to the higher retention and persistence rates at the college.
