Student Support Resources

Spartan Success/Early Alert

Spartan Success is ECC’s early alert system which is designed to promote retention and student success. Students who are experiencing difficulty early in the semester can benefit from this early intervention. When faculty encounter a situation with a student in which the faculty or student would benefit from additional support, faculty are encouraged to submit a Spartan Success alert within the first 3-4 weeks of class.

More details, including how to submit a Spartan Success alert, can be found in the Spartan Success Early Alert Guide and on the ECC Electronic Platforms page.

Student Access & Disability Services

Reasonable accommodations are designed to provide equal access to students with disabilities. The accommodations are determined on an individual basis; therefore, not all accommodations are appropriate for every student. When a faculty member has a student who is registered to receive accommodations, the faculty member will receive an electronic notification from the ECC Student Disability Services Office.
