Frequently Asked Questions: SOS Form

What issues merit submitting an SOS?
An SOS can be submitted for any undergraduate student who exhibits at-risk behaviors inside or outside of the classroom. At-risk 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 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.

How can I 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 the identified concerns.

What happens after I submit an SOS?
An AEC staff member will contact the student immediately to discuss the issue(s) and, if requested, will follow up with the concerned faculty or staff member.

What if a student as a student affairs-related issue?
Contact the Dean of Campus Life on each campus

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.
