Student Success Programs


The goal of Student Success Programs is to support the retention and success of all Clark College students, from the point of college entry to program completion. We provide targeted outreach and support for students facing challenges with academic progress, first-term students, and students moving from Transitional Studies to college-level coursework. We use proactive, reactive, and data-informed strategies to provide intensive, targeted outreach and intervention designed to meet students at their points of need. Student Success Programs staff and peer mentors assist students with accessing and navigating the various spaces, resources, and strategies available at Clark and the surrounding community that are key for students to establish and achieve their academic goals.

Key services:

Academic Early Warning (AEW)

AEW is a resource that enables instructors to communicate with their students early in the term about any behaviors that are interfering with their success in class. The warning is intended to provide students with sufficient time to: 1) identify and correct problematic behaviors that are hindering success in class, 2) access appropriate campus resources, and 3) if necessary, withdraw from classes if circumstances prohibit successful completion of coursework.

Students who receive an Academic Early Warning are encouraged to contact their instructors, trained AEW staff and peer mentors, and financial sources for strategies to improve course grades and guidance on course withdrawals.
