The Students First Office would like to wish students, staff, and faculty a magnificent and invigorating winter break! As the University prepares for a new term, we would like to remind the campus community of important information about the Starfish EARLY ALERT and CONNECT appointment scheduling technology.

Starfish Reminders & Winter Break Schedule:
  • November 30: Last day of classes for Fall 2022
  • December 8: Last day to issue flags, kudos, and referrals for the Fall 2022 term
  • December 9: Starfish administrator clears Fall 2022 flags, kudos, and referrals (Note: Cleared fall items will remain available for historical viewing in the student’s folder, but the status will show as resolved)
  • December 12: Flags, kudos, and select referrals re-enabled for instructors to issue to students enrolled in Winter Term courses

Starfish EARLY ALERT will remain available during the winter term to allow instructors to issue flags, kudos, and select referrals for students enrolled in their courses. Instructors will not be asked to complete any Academic Status Reports during Winter term.

Starfish CONNECT appointment scheduling will remain available to allow instructors and staff to post appointment availability for students. Instructors and staff who will be away during this time should remove all appointment availability from Starfish prior to leaving to prevent scheduling conflicts.
