Early Warning System

Getting students the assistance they need.

Adelphi has established an early warning system to help identify students who may show signs of academic distress. From the beginning of each term, all instructors, especially those teaching first-year courses, look for indications which may include: 

  • frequent absences/lateness to class
  • poor class participation
  • failure to complete assignments

Faculty can discuss their concerns with the student individually, speak with the student’s assigned academic adviser, or call the Office of Academic Services and Retention.

Each semester, instructors teaching undergraduate courses submit Early Warning Rosters for each of their classes. They are required to indicate those students exhibiting signs of academic distress and note their specific academic problems.

Students, along with their adviser and professor, will be informed through their Adelphi email account by the Office of Academic Services and Retention so that they can get the assistance they need.
