Alerts and Cases within BoilerConnect allow for a more intentional interaction with students in the referral process. Anyone with the appropriate access (typically Advisor/Coach) can issue an alert on a student which will result in either outreach or an automated email from the referral office.  For more information on all of the available alerts in BoilerConnect, please see the information below.  The available referral offices continue to grow each semester as we continue to enhance this functionality of the platform, so be sure to check back often!
