Starfish, the Student Success Network, is a resource for students. It is a means for faculty and staff to give you feedback about your progress at the university and to help you connect with resources on campus if you need help.
Starfish flags, kudos, and referrals are simply notifications. They do not indicate grades. If you receive a flag or a referral, you are strongly encouraged to take action early and speak with your course instructor, your advisor, and/or a member of the New School staff.
When logged into
Starfish you can schedule appointments with your advisor, faculty members, and various offices on campus.
Help is available! If you have a concern that is impacting your ability to succeed, you can now request help via
Starfish, and a corresponding New School staff member will assist you.
To do so,
log into Starfish, The Student Success Network, and click on the “Request Help” button on the left-hand navigation bar. Select from list, the type of help you are requesting from the drop-down menu and add any relevant comments that would help us know how to help you. Options include health concerns, feeling connected, change in financial circumstances, personal difficulties, concern about another student, and much more.
Starfish gives faculty members the ability to raise a flag for certain concerns they may be having about students in their course. Flag options include attendance concerns, missing or late assignments, risk of failing, health concerns and much more.
Here are some step you should follow after you have received a flag.
If you still have questions, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can raise a “Starfish Concern/Question” flag through the Request Help feature in Starfish.
