What is Starfish
Starfish is a student management system designed to improve the way MCC supports student success. The online system assists faculty and staff to better identify the challenges students are facing and provides a number of tracking items to connect students to valuable services and early interventions. The suite of tools allows students to make advising appointments online with members of their success network, raise a virtual hand with any question, and see their progress on a degree plan. Staff and faculty can use the tools to complete progress surveys, log student participation in activities, and record notes after meeting with students. Starfish allows for increased communication between students, academic advisors, faculty, and staff who are all working together to enhance student learning and success.
