• Starfish

  • 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.

    Why are we using it?

    We want you to succeed at The New School. Starfish makes it easier for us to connect you with resources to help you succeed. We want you to get help when you need it so that you can move forward and successfully complete your degree.

    What will this accomplish?

    Our goal is to make it easier for you to connect with the resources you need to be successful at The New School. Use the scheduling tool to make appointments, and keep an eye on your referrals and flags to track your progress and get help when needed.

    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.
