Personal Counseling Assistance Program (PCAP)

The Retention Alert system at IVCC is a process by which faculty can let other IVCC personnel know students are at risk of not succeeding. Alerts are categorized in four areas: Attendance/Participation, Student Issues, Academic/Cognitive, and Study Skills/Time Management/Organization. Once an instructor makes an alert, referrals to IVCC personnel will start the process to contact the student. Once contact is made with the student, the instructor who made the alert is notified.
