Academic Success – Early Alert Initiative
Attention students! Your success at Brewton-Parker College is our #1 priority. Because of this belief, we have put in place an early alert initiative.
How it works:
- Three weeks into the term your instructor will assess your academic progress and monitor class attendance.
- Your professor will take daily attendance and submit in an automated system. The Athletic Director receives an alert once you have missed 10% of seat time in class. The Office of Student Engagement and Success, your Academic Advisor, and the Athletic Director receives automated alerts when you miss 20%, 30%, and 35% of seat time in class.
- Should they have cause for concern, they will submit an Early Academic Intervention/Alert referral to the Office of Student Engagement and Success for follow up. Please be mindful that anyone who has a concern about you can submit a referral (coaches, another staff member, etc.).
- The Office of Student Engagement and Success will follow up with you through email to request a meeting to discuss any issues or concerns hindering your academic progress and offer assistance needed.
- During our appointment together we will determine a course of action to place you back on the right track for success
- You will be referred to the appropriate resources to assist us in the plan we develop.
- The faculty member or individual who submitted the referral will be notified of our developed actions
- The follow through of the plan will be your responsibility. Should your absence continue, this could lead to an administrative withdrawal from your class.
- The Office of Student Engagement and Success will follow up with you each week to check progress and determine if further assistance is needed
At BPC, we want your success to exceed beyond the classroom and into your career. After you complete your degree, the first tool you need to start your career is an effective resume. Therefore, our staff is working hard to provide you with the opportunities to explore your interests and values as you build your resume through workshops and information sessions. Not only will you have the chance to hone your interview skills, but you will also build your resume as you receive certificates of completion for each workshop and information session you attend.
As you work on your resume, you will also have the chance to explore career options. We are excited to invite the Georgia Department of Labor on campus for a Career Fair during the 2017-18 Fall and Spring semester.
Your career doesn’t have to wait until you graduate. Get started now!
