Early Alert Services are part of New Student Programs, and are intended to help students when an intervention of support is needed.  In collaboration with other campus support services, we reach out to students to provide individual guidance and help create strategies to address whatever issues may be of concern.  Students may need only one meeting with our staff, or may need continuing support. Either way, we are here to help.

Issues that Early Alert Services supports include:

  • Academic Performance
  • Class Attendance
  • Lack of Engagement in the Classroom
  • Connecting with Campus Resources
  • Family Concerns
  • Financial Concerns
  • Lack of Campus Involvement/ Social Isolation
  • Time Management/Procrastination

Campus resources for additional concerns:

To discuss a student of concern regarding mental health or substance abuse, please call 401-874-2098 and ask to speak to an Outreach and Intervention team member.

If the student being referred is a residential student (lives on campus), and is experiencing roommate conflict, homesickness, or other concerns regarding the residential experience please have students contact their Resident Advisor, Hall Director, or Housing and Residence Life Customer Service (Phone: 401.874.4151; Email: housing@etal.uri.edu).  Referring parties can also contact Housing and Residence Life Customer Service (Phone: 401.874.4151; Email: housing@etal.uri.edu) with questions and/or concerns.

Faculty, staff, peers, and family members play a vital role in student success. As you notice students struggling academically or personally, it is important to refer these students to Early Alert for assistance. Students are welcomed and encouraged to contact the office directly as well.

Referrals may be done via referral form, telephone, email, or in person. Referrals to Early Alert may be kept anonymous.

If you recognize that a student may be struggling with an academic or personal issue: Submit a Referral
