Every student deserves a fair chance at success.

Today’s students face significant challenges as they go through each stage of their higher education experience. No one is immune from the academic, financial, social, and wellness challenges that can derail a student’s progress. In order to keep students engaged, you must accelerate, automate and optimise your student retention strategies to support them.

Early Alerts

Starfish Early Alert, the early warning and student tracking module of the Starfish platform, collects information and manages concerns in a way that respects different groups’ unique workflows, so they can engage more deeply with more students.

Crucial Connections

Starfish Connect, the online appointment scheduling and case management module of the Starfish platform, facilitates meaningful contact between students and their advisors, instructors, and tutors.


Between 5 and 12% of your institution’s budget is committed to student services. Starfish can measure these investments and help to amplify their outcomes. We offer reporting both within the Starfish platform and through our predictive modeling services that help institutions identify patterns and measure the effectiveness of all your interventions.
