HAWK Alert Program

The HAWK (Honing Academics With Knowledge) Alert Program is designed to identify those students who are having academic difficulty at any point in their academic career. By identifying these students, the Center for Student Success can address their needs, thereby increasing the likelihood of their success.

There are often reasonable causes for poor academic performance including:

  • Class Attendance
  • Personal Problems
  • Class/Test Performance
  • Financial Aid Concerns
  • Work Related Issues
  • Health Problems
  • Transition Issues

Faculty, through regular contact with students, are the first to see the results of these problems which manifest themselves through low test and quiz scores, failure to turn in assignments, poor class attendance, and/or poor class participation.

How HAWK Alert works:

Step 1: Faculty/Staff can refer "Roster and Non-Roster" students to the Center for Student Success in the following ways:
Step 2: We contact the student and provide information about campus resources.
Step 3: We counsel and advise the student about ways to address the academic difficulties.
Step 4: We report back to the faculty/staff/advisor the outcome of the meeting with the student either directly and/or by uploading our progress within the referral.

***Have a student doing a great job in your class? Make sure you submit a "KUDOS" referral that can be used to congratulate or encourage a student that is performing well. Please feel free to "motivate" your students!
