Early AlertEarly Alert (USM)
Early Alert is a formal communication tool for faculty, staff, and students to help identify and intervene on behalf of students who exhibit risk factors and face withdrawal from the university because of personal, academic or financial issues. Faculty, staff, and students can safely and securely submit information on a student experiencing academic challenges or other issues. When a referral is made, the First Year Initiative will reach out to the student to help identify problem areas and to help the student take ownership of their academic success.

Students, faculty, and staff can update their contact information to ensure they are receiving time-sensitive emergency messages via text and voice messages to cell phones and home phones. Eagle Alert allows the university to better inform the campus community of imminent danger and emergency situations.
