UNIVERSITY CONNECT & PERSIST
Looking for Early Alert?
Early Alert is now housed in University Connect and Persist, which oversees MAP-Works. MAP-Works is a new communication and student tracking tool. It is also the new early alert referral tool. MAP-Works will impact student success and retention by identifying at-risk students early in the semester. It will also give faculty/staff the information needed to identify and coordinate interventions with those students. We have begun the process of moving our old referral system to MAP-Works.
We encourage you to continue referring students. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
We will be phasing out our former referral system after this fall 2013 semester and encourage you to begin making referrals through our new system, MAP-Works.
University Connect and Persist assists students in creating action plans and support networks to promote success
MAP-Works: MAP-Works is a communication and student tracking tool that helps us understand how students are transitioning to NKU, connect the faculty/staff in the students' network and identify at-risk students earlier in the semester. It is also the new early alert referral tool.
Book lending: The book lending program allows students to borrow one textbook per semester. Students are encouraged to bring their book titles to our office (UC 122) up to one week before classes begin. Students who borrow books are required to have a 30 minute meeting with a UCAP Coordinator.
SGA Grant: The SGA Grant is a last dollar tuition grant to help students who are struggling financially pay off their bills and persist in college. This grant is offered to students one time only. There is some eligibility criteria, students are encouraged to contact our office and set up an appointment.
Financial Consultation: UCAP Coordinators will assist students with financial issues by educating them about their financial aid and teaching the student to become proactive in solving their own financial aid issues. The UCAP Coordinator will help the student align a financial plan with their academic plan. The UCAP Coordinator will also assist the student with scholarship information as well as discuss other options to pay for tuition.
