Instructors with "at risk" students (those with erratic attendance, low grades, or who don't participate in class discussion or activities) should refer these students to the Director of Retention, who will make contact with the student to discuss their options.  It is important to identify those students who may benefit from advising and make a referral to the Beacon Project as early in the semester as possible.  Refer students who are in danger of failing, who are having issues with attendance, or those who may benefit from tutoring or academic assistance. 

To refer a student to Beacon, you will need their name, student ID number and information about your course.  These items can be found on your official class roster.  Once you have this information, fill out a copy of the Beacon Referral Form and email it to the retention director. The form can also be found on the faculty portal, or you can access it from the teaching excellence site. For a copy of the referral form, click here.
