The FSU Proactive Referral and Engagement (PRE) program supports students experiencing academic challenge. We help students improve their learning processes and outcomes.
When faculty and instructors submit referrals through PRE, it indicates that they care about student success and believe students will benefit from additional support. The PRE Coordinator and staff reach out personally to each referred student. We encourage students to schedule a session with an ACE study skills tutor, group tutor session, course-based tutor session, and/or a personal academic consultation. Study skills tutors or ACE faculty will attempt to address students’ general academic needs, and may also refer students to academic departments, tutoring resources, or other student services for more specialized help.
NOTE: To ensure full functionality of the Early Alert tool users must access Canvas via https://canvas.fsu.edu. Accessing Canvas via https://fsu.instructure.com can lead to issues when using Chrome or Safari browsers.
The Early Alert tool is not automatically enabled in courses, so before you access it for the first time you will need to click into your Canvas course and manually enable the item on your course's navigation menu. You will need to do this in every course where you wish to use the Early Alert Tool in. To enable it:
If you encounter an error message that says "403 Forbidden", please log out of Canvas then log back in using this canvas.fsu.edu link.
Once you've enabled the Early Alert tool you can now use it to submit alerts to the Early Alert & PRE Specialist.
After submitting a referral, you will receive a Campus Connect notification about the case being closed when the student has engaged with PRE staff to accept or decline services. Additionally a representative from the PRE staff may contact you to discuss updates and additional resources.
