For the past eight years, the Starfish platform has been an integral part of the student retention and completion efforts at more than 250 institutions. Now, as part of the Hobsons portfolio of higher education solutions, the Starfish platform can engage an even broader range of college and university staff in student success.
Hobsons and Penn State University joined forces to ensure that all Penn State students receive informed, personalized advising that sets them on track to complete their education and life goals.
In 2010, Cleveland State University (CSU) had a six-year graduation rate of only 29 percent. In the fall of 2012, the Starfish® Enterprise Success Platform™ went live on the CSU campus. In 2014, the Ohio Board of Regents reported that CSU’s six-year graduation rate had increased to 34 percent, and today the rate approaches 40 percent.
