Frequently Asked Questions: SOS Form

What issues merit submitting an SOS?
An SOS can be submitted for any undergraduate student who exhibits at-risk academic behaviors inside or outside of the classroom. At-risk academic behaviors include, but are not limited to: poor academic performance, academic disengagement, difficulties resulting from a lack of English proficiency and attendance issues.

Why is early intervention so important?
This campus-wide effort allows the Advising and Enrichment Center (AEC) to reach out to students demonstrating at-risk academic behaviors. The AEC staff is then able to assist these students in correcting the identified issues and discuss potential solutions. Addressing at-risk behaviors as early as possible increases the possibility of implementing a successful solution before the end of the semester.

Who should use the SOS form?
Any NYIT faculty or staff member who is concerned about an undergraduate student.

Is there a deadline for when I can submit an SOS?
An SOS can be submitted any time during the fall or spring semester, however it is most effective when submitted with sufficient time to address and resolve the identified concerns.

What happens after I submit an SOS?
An AEC staff member will contact the student within 24 to 48 hours to discuss the issue(s) and will follow up with the concerned faculty or staff member.

What if a student shows other signs of at-risk behavior not necessarily related to academics?
If you have concerns regarding health-related issues, or to discuss disability accommodations, you may also contact Counseling and Wellness Services. If you have concerns regarding plagiarism, academic dishonesty, disruptive behavior, you may also contact the Dean of Campus Life

Does an SOS go on a student's permanent record?
No. The SOS is not designed to penalize students, but instead to address academic difficulties in time for students to correct problematic behavior before the end of the semester. Faculty and staff should not hesitate to alert the AEC at the earliest sign of a problem.

Contact the Advising and Enrichment Center (AEC) with questions.
