Student Assistance and
Intervention for
Learning Success (SAILS)

What is SAILS

The SAILS (Early Alert) program at RIC is a systematic and collaborative effort between faculty and staff designed to improve the rate of student academic success. The goal of SAILS is to promote and increase academic persistence, retention and success by intervening early in the semester with students who are demonstrating behaviors that are likely to result in poor performance in their classes. Identification and referral of students who are struggling in their courses in the first weeks of the semester may help them connect with services that can support their academic needs and at times their personal lives as well.
