Retention, or the ability to help our students persist to graduation, is very important at ECU. Retention is the responsibility of the entire University. The Academic Success Center plays a vital role by utilizing a retention management software called "Tiger Alert".


Tiger Alert is a campus-wide retention management component which helps with early identification of students who may be at-risk. Through Tiger Alert, we are able to identify at-risk students and reach out to them to provide necessary resources and referrals to help them succeed academically. If a professor is concerned about a student’s academic performance, he/she is able to complete a Tiger Alert and a staff member in the Academic Success Center will promptly reach out to the student and begin working with them to identify what type of assistance is needed.
