Starfish Early Alert system supports student success, persistence and graduation. Early Alert allows advisors, faculty and instructors to identify, communicate, and provide guidance to students demonstrating behaviors, performance, and characteristics that correlate with risk of not succeeding academically.

Starfish Connect offers advisors, faculty and instructors a convenient method to communicate directly with students and with each other, regarding the student's progress in a course. Students who receive feedback early in the semester regarding their progress are more likely to seek assistance and support when needed.

Starfish is accessible through RCSJ-Cumberland's​ Blackboard -
