Common reasons faculty refer students include: excessive absenteeism, poor participation and/or
performance on exams, challenges with study skills and/or preparation for class, and other problems
(financial, health, personal, etc.) that are affecting class performance. Once a student is referred,
peer Student Advisors and/or staff contact the student and assist the student with accessing
appropriate services. As needed, referred students are monitored through the semester to ensure
services are accessed and improving the student's academic experience and success at Pacific.
