The Starfish Enterprise Success Platform™

Starfish Retention Solutions is committed to helping students finish what they start. This document explains a little more about the Starfish approach to student success and how the modules in the Starfish platform work together.


Student success begins by learning more, earlier, about your students. The Starfish EARLY ALERT module makes it easy for institutions to collect information from both people and campus systems.

Starfish CONNECT™

Starfish CONNECT was designed to promote engagement and remove obstacles between students and their advisors, tutors and instructors. This module includes powerful case management, appointment scheduling, and communication tools to promote engagement and help students stay on track.

Starfish Degree Planner™

Starfish Degree Planner can help students determine the exact courses and course sequences needed to complete a degree or certificate, thus reducing the time to graduation.  Students can also create multiple plans, or do “what if” planning to see how a potential change in major might impact the previously-completed credits.
