Starfish is an Early Alert retention tool to support student academic success. Starfish simplifies communication between students, faculty, and support services. Through Starfish, you can connect with the network of faculty and staff who directly support your success at CCC. You can receive timely feedback and messages and request help with any challenges you might have in achieving academic success.
Starfish Early Alert allows an instructor to notify you when there is a concern regarding your course grades or academic performance. These Early Alert notifications called “Flags,” identify concerns regarding frequent absences, missed assignments, low scores or possible failure in a class. Starfish also allows instructors to give praise or “Kudos” to celebrate a student's success or improvement in a class. Referrals are used to direct you to contact a particular office on campus. Notifications are sent to your CCC email or may be viewed on your Starfish Profile Dashboard.
