What is Early Intervention?

Early Intervention is resources offering academic support to Nash Community College students with the goal of helping each participant reach their potential as a college student.

Once you are referred by an instructor, a counselor will contact you to arrange a convenient meeting time. The counselor will work with you one-on-one to identify areas that you would like to improve upon, link you with resources to help you become a more successful student and meet your educational goals.

Why was I referred to Early Intervention?

Your instructor referred you because they believe you can be a more successful student if you had access to additional support and resources.

Being referred to Early Intervention is a good thing, because it gives you the opportunity to work one-on-one with a counselor who will help you identify resources that will benefit you and help you to reach your educational goals.

How can Early Intervention help me?

Early Intervention can help you to become a more successful student. However, you must be willing to listen, take advice and be committed to work and do your best.

How does Early Intervention work?

If your instructor notices that you could benefit from additional resources, they will meet with you to discuss some options and possibly refer you directly to the resource. For example, if you need help with math homework, the instructor may refer you to the Math Tank. If there are other needs in which they are unable to identify, they may refer you to Early Intervention.

Once your instructor completes the online referral form, you will receive an e-mail from a counselor with a request to set up an appointment in person or by phone for students enrolled in distance education courses.. If the counselor is unable to reach you by e-mail, they will contact you by phone and/or letter.

Once you meet with a counselor, they will work with you individually to clarify your goals and develop a plan that will help you be successful in reaching them.
