Issuing an Alert / Referral in Navigate


Alerts (sometimes known as "referrals") are a way to draw attention to a student who might be at risk for a variety of reasons, such as losing financial aid, undergoing difficult personal scenarios that require assistance, or intending to withdraw from the institution. 

Navigate allows faculty and staff to issue an Alert regarding a student, which then gets automatically routed to the appropriate individuals within an office.  Rider University staff members will then complete the appropriate follow up and outreach to the student regarding their situation.

Currently, Navigate supports referrals to the following offices:

  • Dean of Student's Office
  • OneStop / Financial Services
  • Academic Success Center (Tutoring)
  • Veteran & Military Connected Affairs Office (coming soon)
