Student Success Management Features
Starfish enables advisors, faculty, and departments across campus to collaborate and communicate directly with students from within the platform.
- Messages and Notes
Messages and Notes
Send students messages via email or text, or send notes to other staff members in a student’s personal success network.
Receive alerts from colleagues when students in your network need assistance, or stay in the loop with updates to know that a student got the help they needed.
Schedule time for yourself (or for a colleague) with a student directly in Starfish, or allow students to schedule their own time during your customizable office hours. Integrations with Microsoft Office and Google Calendar ensure you’re always up to date.
Centralized Student Record
Starfish puts all the information you need to support students in a single, centralized location, with detailed permissions to ensure student data is only available to those who need access.
- Student Information
- Flags, Alerts, Notes
- Student Success Network
View core information imported from your SIS system, including admissions, demographics, programs, term status, and more.
Flags, Alerts, Notes
Review flags, referrals, to-dos, and other alerts on a student’s record to quickly see where follow-up is needed.
Student Success Network
View a list of other faculty and staff on campus in each student’s success network so you can easily find the right partners for providing support. Send them a note via Starfish, or view their contact information to follow up directly.
Improve efficiency, streamline communication, and scale your student success efforts with workflows and automation in Starfish.
- Automated Alerts
- Success Plans
- Closed Loop Reporting
Create automated workflows to trigger alerts, flags, or communications with staff or students based upon data and activities tracked within Starfish.
Create templates for best practice student success plans. Make it easy to assign them for new students.
Closed Loop Reporting
Ensure everyone in a student’s success network stays informed on that student’s progress with communication workflows that “close the loop” back to the referring party when an action is completed.
Roles and Permissions
Starfish’s flexible roles and relationship structure makes it easy to customize how each department interacts with students and with each other.
- Custom Actions
- Control Access to Sensitive Data
- Facilitate Collaboration
Customize the actions that each user can take in the system based on what is most important and relevant for their role.
Control Access to Sensitive Data
From financial aid information to student conduct and mental health counseling notes, Starfish helps you ensure that important student data is only seen by those who need access.
Use the power of role-based workflows to allow users to raise flags, edit notes, schedule meetings on behalf of others on campus, and more.
