Navigate360: Early Alerts

Early Alerts is a student success initiative designed to proactively identify and support students who may require assistance for various reasons during the term. The College will offer timely outreach through services and assistance. This is achieved through the collaboration of faculty, staff, and utilization of Navigate360. The purpose of Early Alerts is to:

  • nudge and encourage students’ academic performance
  • conduct outreach to students who may be struggling
  • praise students who are excelling

Early Alerts consists of Progress Surveys which are periodic assessments by instructors to track individual student performance during the term. Ad Hoc Alerts are like progress surveys but can be raised at any time during the term. Students can Hand Raise, issuing an alert on themselves, allowing students to self-identity.

General Question/Help


Instructors should provide detailed notes when creating the alerts identifying the concern, what needs to be improved, and including methods to increase student success. Please add a note in Navigate360 if the student exhibits the desired behavior before the alert is closed.

Students will receive automatic notifications providing information and additional resources. Most alerts are configured to:

  • notify supporting departments including the Academic Success Center, Advising, and Holistic Support
  • have supporting departments connect with students reinforcing the instructor's messaging and connect to college resources 
  • formally document the student interactions in Navigate360

Hand Raise allows students to "raise their hand" by issuing alerts on themselves. Students can use Hand Raise either from the Quick Add or the Help menu
