First Alert Program
First Alert promotes the retention of multicultural students enrolled and those being reinstated at Western Washington University through a positive intervention program. Student Outreach Services, in conjunction with Academic Advising, personally contact all multicultural students with low academic scholarship. Students on First Alert are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment with an adviser, enroll in an EDUC 108 class, or participate in a workshop addressing academic success. Continued intervention includes follow-up appointments, an academic success kit, study groups, and course scheduling assistance.
