The University of Missouri System campuses have agreed to concurrently implement Starfish Early Alert, an academic advising system, as part of the comprehensive retention initiative. When fully implemented, Starfish will replace the Academic Alert system currently used by Missouri S&T. Implementation of the new system is scheduled for Aug. 15. Academic Alert will continue to run in parallel with Starfish until the end of the fall 2014 semester.

Starfish provides an enhanced system that allows students to request appointments with their instructors and advisors via the Starfish calendar, which syncs with the faculty or staff member’s Outlook Exchange calendar. Starfish will also facilitate better communication overall to help build student academic success.

Training sessions and user documentation will be provided throughout June and July. For more information concerning Starfish Early Alert, contact Rachel Morris at 341-7600.
