Early Alert Program & Official Email Information

The Early Alert program is designed to promote student success through communication between students, instructors, and advisors. If an instructor feels that you are experiencing difficulties in a course (in terms of assignments, test scores, participation, or attendance), you may receive an email message through the Early Alert program.

The email message will tell you if your instructor has concerns about your attendance or academic progress and will prompt you to seek out your instructor. The message will also include a list of college resources available to you and steps you can take to improve your progress. Review your instructor’s recommendations carefully and take action in a timely fashion—it’s key to your success! These Early Alert emails will be sent to your preferred personal email account. If you do not open your Early Alert email, a letter will be mailed to your home address.

Please read your email frequently as email is the official form of communication for Inver Hills Community College.  You can often eliminate follow-up emails, calls and letters by viewing and downloading images on all emails from Inver Hills Community College. It is important to click the “Download Images” or “View Images” button in the header of IHCC emails as this action converts an email’s status from “Not-Viewed” to “Viewed”. The college staff works together to ensure your email communications are timely, targeted and relevant; be sure to read ALL your emails. You may update your personal email address by logging on to E-Services, clicking Account Management, then Demographic Info.
