Request to meet with a Success Coach by clicking on the link below:


 

The goal of this program is to promote academic success for students.

Student Alert referrals come from your professors. This is their way of providing extra support for you outside of the classroom. If your professor feels as though you are at risk of falling behind in class, they will be able to, through a computerized system, refer you to this program.

Where do referrals go?

When students are referred, a Success Coach will send an email informing them about the alert for the designated course(s) and instruct them to make an appointment to meet. The Success Coaching program will also email the respective faculty to let them know that we’ve completed an outreach to the student. We will also email the students’ advisor informing them about their assigned student who may need support outside of the classroom.

Academic difficulty in a college course can be contributed to various factors, and how you are handling your difficulty will either help or inhibit your success at West Chester University. Consider this program as your one-stop-shop for referral information.

How does the Student Alert system work?

The Student Alert Program is available to faculty to identify students they believe would benefit from outreach from the student success team. If a professor feels as though a student is at risk of falling behind in class, they will be able to, through a computerized system, refer a student to our office for support. This is their way of providing extra support for students outside of the classroom.

What if I receive a Student Alert?

When students are referred, a Success Coach will send an email informing them about the alert for the designated course(s) and instruct them to make an appointment to meet. The Success Coaching program will also email the respective faculty to let them know that we’ve completed an outreach about the concerned student. We will also email the students’ advisor informing them of their assigned student who may need support outside of the classroom.

Will this go on my permanent transcript?
