Students at UBC’s Vancouver campus are informed about Early Alert each fall through the UBCfyi newsletter. Students at UBC’s Okanagan campus will be informed about Early Alert through a variety of channels beginning fall 2015 .

Faculty members are also encouraged to reinforce the purpose of the program with their students and can use the following resources to share information about Early Alert.

Reach out and ask for help if you need it

University students often encounter setbacks from time to time that can impact academic performance. If you run into difficulties and need assistance, I encourage you to contact me by email or phone during my office hours, before or after class, or by dropping into my office (location). I will do my best to support your success during the term. This includes identifying concerns I may have about your academic progress or wellbeing through Early Alert. With Early Alert, faculty members can connect you with advisors who offer students support and assistance getting back on track to success. Only specialized UBC advisors are able to access any concerns I may identify, and Early Alert does not affect your academic record.

For more information, visit earlyalert.ubc.ca.

For information about addressing mental or physical health concerns, including seeing a UBC counsellor or doctor, visit students.ubc.ca/livewell
