DEAR CAMPUS:

As we begin Summer Quarter, we would like to remind you about Shoreline Early Alert (SEA).

SEA is a referral program to serve ALL (domestic and international) students on campus. SEA is designed to provide academic intervention to students encountering difficulty in the pursuit of their academic goals. We recognize that intervention is a process and may not produce immediate results. That is why it is our goal is to reach out to the student early in the quarter and connect them to the appropriate resources.

MAKE A REFERRAL!

Use the SEA Referral Form rather than sending individual emails. A SEA Team member will respond to the referral within 24 hours by reaching out to both you and the student.

Please view our flyer (below) for more program and contact information.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and to support our students!

SEA is here to help students succeed

Dear Campus:

We would like to remind you of the early alert system called Shoreline Early Alert (SEA). SEA is a referral program designed to help students encountering difficulty in the pursuit of their academic goals by providing academic intervention. SEA is intended to serve ALL (domestic and international) students on campus.

*REMINDER: Intervention is a process and may not produce immediate results. Our goal is to reach out to the student early in the quarter and connect them to the appropriate resources.*

Examples of SEA referrals include: 

  • Low test scores
  • Unexplained excessive absenteeism or tardiness
  • Pacing in an online class
  • Not doing assignments
  • Financial matters
  • External concerns

Make a Referral to SEA!
Use the SEA Referral Form rather than sending individual emails. A SEA Team member will respond within 24 hours to both you and the student. SEA is intended to provide academic intervention and support to students in a variety of ways.

What happens next:
After our team receives a referral a member will work to respond within 24 hours to both you and the student. We continue to reach out to the student in order to set up an initial meeting where we assess the student’s needs and most appropriate resources.

Please view our flyer and visit our site to learn more about SEA or to view our Referral Form.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and to support our students!

Thanks,
SEA Team
