Hobsons Retain is a communication and reporting tool used to assist departments in generating reports, delivering targeted e-mail communication, and posting information on the CSI Bridge (Student VIP Page).  This system is programmed for matriculated undergraduate students only.

Hobsons communication requests can be made through completion of the attached form.  Please forward requests one week in advance.  Hobsons Request Form Coming Soon.

Hobsons Retain also manages the Early Alert Program.  This program enables faculty to provide academic performance information to their students early in the academic semester.    Faculty can submit alert rosters electronically twice each semester.  The first roster (early alert) occurs three (3) weeks into the semester. The second (mid-semester alert) occurs during the 7th week.
