Welcome to the Starfish Advising and Retention System page.

Starfish is an early alert, retention and advising system that replaces GradesFirst.  Instructors and advisors can use many of the tools within Starfish to keep track of students who might be falling between the cracks academically.  They also might use Starfish to send a Kudo to students who they feel are excelling.

In addition, instructors and advisors can use Starfish to schedule appointments with their students and keep meeting minutes from those appointments.
