Strategies for Success - Academic Alert Program



Middlesex is committed to supporting students as they work toward achieving their academic, career and personal goals. The Academic Alert Program is a program that works toward improving retention at the college by creating partnerships between instructors, academic counselors, and campus service departments.

SARS ALRT is the software that is used to support the Academic Alert program. The software enables email communication between instructors, students and campus service departments whenever a student is experiencing academic difficulty. The software supports the early alert intervention and referral process that has been designed to get students back on track.

The success of the Academic Alert Program very much depends upon the efforts of instructors, academic counselors and service departments working as a team to identify students who are at-risk for dropping out or stopping out of college and connecting them with the services that can help them to persist successfully until they have reached their goals at Middlesex.
