Early Alert & Thrive at CNC

Unexpected challenges and difficulties at home, at work, or at school may come up for you during the school year that can impact your studies. At CNC, we want you to succeed and enjoy your time here. If you are a student at the Prince George campus, during the semester your instructors or other staff may refer you to the Early Alert & Thrive Program. This program is completely voluntary and connects you with campus resources that can help you work towards your academic and personal goals, and get the most out of your college experience.

If you are referred to the Early Alert & Thrive program, a staff member from the service area(s) you were referred to will reach out to you to discuss the referral, and to see if you’re interested in accessing services. It’s up to you whether or not you’d like to access supports, and you can choose which of the recommended resources you would like to connect with. If you are interested in accessing campus resources, the staff member who reached out to you will help you to book an appointment with the appropriate areas. If you haven’t been referred to the program but are interested in finding out more about the resources available to you on campus, please connect with us in Student Services by visiting Room 1-753 or calling 250-561-5818.
