Starfish Is Coming

What is Starfish?

Starfish by Hobsons is a retention solution program that helps to create an online student success environment, facilitating programs such as counseling, advising, coaching and others with the aim of improving student success and retention. 

Some of the features in Starfish include:

Degree Planner

  • Starfish let’s students take degree planning into their own hands by creating their own educational plan on their own or with help from a faculty coach and request approval from a counselor

Early Alert

  • Faculty and staff will have the capability to communicate with a student and those in their success network through flags, referrals, to do items and kudos.


  • Let’s faculty schedule office hours where students can schedule their own appointments online

How will Starfish help students?

Starfish gives faculty an easy and quick way to communicate with students by raising flags, kudos, sending referrals and assigning to dos. This also gives students the ability to raise their hands when they need help in their courses or need help from student services.
