What is Early Alert Reporting System?

Early Academic Report System (EARS)  is the temporary early alert system YSU is using Fall 2019.  EARS will allow faculty to raise a concern about students at any time during the semester and can be accessed through the Penguin portal. EARS is also accessible via survey twice this semester: August 39 – September 6 and October 4 – October 11. Watch for that to come through your YSU email.
