NEIU is seeking a comprehensive web-based, online Early Alert/Early Warning student software application System that enables faculty and staff the ability to easily identify students exhibiting at-risk behaviors which would impede the student's academic progress and enable the university to develop & deliver appropriate intervention processes as required to assist the student(s) as necessary.

Conversely, the university also desires the ability to easily identify students exhibiting successful academic behaviors which would empower the student to achieve academic excellence and enables the university to develop & deliver appropriate reward processes or opportunities to encourage the student(s) academic progress and success.

The objective for the system is to increase student retention, persistence, success, and graduation rates. NEIU uses Ellucian Banner as the foundation for the University's ERP Solution for Student and Academic Systems, Human Resources and Finance. The University expects all proposed Early Alert/Early Warning applications to easily integrate with the Ellucian Banner ERP application and Desire to Learn (D2L), the university's learning management system.
