• Starfish
  • Starfish, the Student Success Network, is a Web-based platform used here at The New School that connects students with faculty, staff, advisors, and a number of services throughout the campus.

    Students can use Starfish to monitor their progress in any credit-bearing courses they are enrolled in. Starfish also allows students to easily request help, receive follow-up, and schedule appointments to discuss any questions or concerns.

    It is important to know that any flags, kudos, or referrals received via Starfish are simply notifications and 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.

  • What can you do with it?

  • If you still have questions, you can email them to starfish@newschool.edu or you can raise a “Starfish Concern/Question” flag through the Request Help feature in Starfish.
