STARFISH at Fredonia:
Supporting Student Success!!

Starfish at Fredonia is an early alert communication tool that supports student success. Students, academic advisors, and support staff are alerted when academic performance issues arise which may threaten the success of the student. The student is then connected with a member of the Starfish Team, advisors, faculty and other offices on campus to help promote and support their success.

Starfish at Fredonia enables instructors to:

  • Send a “call to action” message directly to students about poor academic performance or attendance

  • Message an electronic “kudos” to acknowledge positive academic progress

  • Directly refer students to additional support resources or services

Starfish at Fredonia allows students to:

  • Raise Your Hand - To ask for help, in a digital format 24-hours a day, when you are unsure whom to ask.

  • Check My Success Network - To view the contact information for all of your current instructors and advisors in one place.

  • Access a gallery of additional campus resources available to all students in the Services tab.
