    Student Referral Form

    Purpose of the Committee / How to Refer

    If you are concerned about anyone who is an undergraduate student at Hamline, please fill out our referral form (link above). You may refer someone to the Early Alert Committee for a variety of reasons. You may know of a friend who is consistently skipping meals, and you're concerned about his health. Perhaps you know of someone who may be developing a substance abuse problem. Maybe you know a first-year who is having too much fun and is skipping too many classes.


    All submissions will be kept confidential. Based on the information you provide, a member of the Early Alert team will follow up with the student. Because of the confidential nature of the referral, the Early Alert Committee is unable to send updates on referrals made using the online submission form.

    If you'd like more information, please contact Patti Klein, the Assistant Dean of Students, at 651-523-2421.
