Early Alert


The purpose of the Early Alert Program is to identify, reach out and provide support and resource referrals to Solano Community College students who are at risk due to academic difficulties and/or from experiencing personal hardships.

Our goals: a. Increase retention and reduce the number of students in academic probation and/or suspension; b. Assist with basic needs when appropriate.

When may a student reach out to Early Alert?

  • Emergency Financial Assistance
  • Housing Insecurity
  • Food Resources
  • Chromebook Loaner Program: Chromebooks are available on a first-come, first-serve basis depending upon availability. Please go to “Resources for Students” on our Homepage.
