Empowering your success


Higher education takes time, money, energy, grit, and dedication. Sound difficult? Luckily, there are a lot of people pulling for you. When obstacles appear, it is important that you know how to connect with the helpful resources and people that have been put in place just for you.

Find and get help – today

The Starfish platform can help your institution coordinate efforts to support you when you need it and make it easy for you to find the right advisor or student service and schedule time to meet with them. The platform also makes it easy for those people to engage with you when they recognize that you need extra help.

Good news, too!

The best part is that when you have done something worth celebrating – including turning around a difficult situation – your instructors and advisors can use the Starfish platform to send you a Kudo. You’ll be surprised how much a little positive news can do for your day.
