More About Starfish

All currently enrolled SIUE students can access Starfish through Blackboard. Newly admitted and returning students should contact the Academic Advising office directly to schedule an appointment. Implemented on June 1, 2014, Starfish is a system to help you manage interactions with your instructors and academic advisor.

As a student, you can use Starfish to:

  • Schedule appointments with advisors and instructors

  • Create a student profile and set up notifications and reminders across all of your devices

  • Monitor your academic performance

  • Check your progress toward graduation

Throughout the semester, you may receive emails from Starfish regarding your grades or academic performance. These reminders will help you to be successful at SIUE.

Prepare For Your Appointment

Academic advisors are available to help you navigate scheduling each semester as you work toward your degree, but it is important you understand the requirements of your degree program and do your own research before each appointment.
