The Parent/Family Early Alert Program allows coordination between the Center for Student Success' support team and families of University of New Haven students in an effort to be proactive, supportive, and actively involved in the success of our students. Parents and/or families can use this early alert form to report any concerning or red flag comments, behaviors or incidents involving the University of New Haven students.
Submitted reports are sent via email to the Director for the Centers for Academic Success and Advising. Students will be contacted by our offices and referred to appropriate resources as necessary (Center for Learning Resources, Counseling Center, Financial Aid, Dean of Students Office, Office of Residential Life, Campus Access Services, etc.) They will provide follow up on the report as needed.
If this is an emergency or there is an immediate need for intervention/assistance call 911 or University Police at (203) 932-7070. University Police will contact necessary support staff if it is after business hours.
Examples of the types of behaviors or actions that may be reported would be:
My student has stopped calling/texting or now is calling/texting much more than normal.
My student has started to want to come home all the time.
My student is talking about how college may not be right for them.

This list is not exhaustive. Reporters should use their own judgment as to what is reportable, erring on the side of over-reporting if in doubt.
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the system is designed to allow referrals to be viewed only by those individuals who have a need to know. The information shared will not become part of the student’s permanent record. In addition, state and federal privacy laws prohibit the unauthorized disclosure of personally identifiable health information.
