WCU Faculty are responsible for following the Principles of Advisement as defined in the Faculty Handbook.
The Early Alert System is designed to assist students who are experiencing academic and other difficulties during their time at WCU by providing University employees with a convenient means to make referrals to the students' assigned advisors and mentors.
Any time faculty and staff are concerned about a student, whether the student is a beginning freshmen or a last semester senior, they are encouraged to make a referral. By seeking to address the students' needs as they arise or become noticed, appropriate interventions can help to empower students to make choices that have a positive impact on their academic success.
If you would like to submit an Early Alert, please complete the on-line Incident Report Form:
Share as much information as possible to assist in appropriate triage and outreach. If there are questions you cannot answer, simply skip those entries. If you would like to speak to someone first about your concerns, call the Office of Student Affairs at 828.227.7234
