Student of Concern

Anyone who is aware that a student is exhibiting behaviors that are of concern in relation to their academic, social, physical, behavioral, emotional or financial/career wellbeing can report their concerns using the Student of Concern (SOC) Reporting Form. Please note this form is not designed to be an emergency response notification process, although this form can and should be submitted after an emergency situation if there is a student involved. Once the SOC form is submitted, the Office of Student Life can reach out to the student to help get the necessary assistance.

Students may demonstrate behavior that indicates distress and a need for assistance. More than a single circumstance, a combination of several factors is most likely to indicate a problem.


Once a Student of Concern report is submitted, the Director of Student Life will review and assess the information in order to determine the best course of action for follow-up. This is done on a case-by-case basis and the type of follow-up will vary depending on the information available and the circumstances surrounding the report. Follow-up may include reaching out to the student directly and working with the student on a success plan or appropriate referrals. The Director of Student Life may contact you for additional information.

Please note that once you have submitted an SOC report, you may not receive any specific follow-up information due to privacy laws and regulations.
