Early Alert Referral 

An Early Alert Referral is an alert from your instructor or other concerned person that you may be experiencing academic difficulties, or maybe your personal life is off track and impacting your academic life. An Early Alert Referral helps you find support resources to stay in class and successfully finish. Falling behind in your studies can have a domino effect on your ability to earn your degree, transfer, graduate, or even qualify for financial aid or scholarships. Let us assist you in identifying individualized options, resources, and opportunities to help you succeed. All Indian Hills services are free and confidential. Remember to work with your instructor to work out a successful educational plan.

If you need assistance, please contact the Indian Hills representative below directly or fill out the Early Alert Form.
