The Clayton Academic Referral Effort (CARE) is an
online early warning referral program designed to enhance
academic success and retention by connecting potentially at-risk
students with support services on the Clayton State University
campus. Faculty teaching courses at the 2000 level or below
(including Learning Support) are encouraged to identify students
who are experiencing academic difficulty at any time during the
semester. Referrals are made through class rolls in the
referrals are made, an automatic email is generated to students
that will be followed up with a personal contact by
Kathy Garrison, our
Center for Academic Success Advisor. Erica will also contact you
via email to let you know she has received the referral, and she
will keep you informed as to the referral status once she meets
with the student. Additional details can be found
on the CARE
Faculty can refer students enrolled in 3000 level courses and
higher to the CAS by completing a referral form online or by
printing a copy and sending the student to the CAS with the form in hand.
If you wish to submit your referral electronically, please click on the
Electronic Referral Form link. Once you complete the form, submit it, and we will receive a copy of it in our general mailbox. We then will print the referral form, and it will be waiting for your student at our reception desk.
If you wish to print a referral form, please click on the
Printable Referral Form link. Once you complete the form, print it, and send it with your student to the CAS. Your student will hand the form to the receptionist when he or she arrives.
Your student will see the receptionist when he or she arrives in the CAS and will then be directed to the services he or she needs. Depending on your request, the receptionist will either guide your student to the resources he or she needs to use or will help your student make an appointment for tutoring services or sign up for a workshop.
Once your student finishes his or her session at the CAS, he or she will fill out a
Visit Summary describing what he or she accomplished during the visit. The CAS keeps one copy of this form, and the other copy is sent to you via interoffice mail.
If you have any other questions, please contact
Kathy Garrison Assistant Director for the CAS.
