About Starfish

Since fall 2012, we have been using an application called Starfish to help the campus improve student retention. Starfish provides faculty with an easy-to-use tool to help identify students at-risk of underachieving. Students are made aware of their at-risk status and informed of services and resources available to help them succeed. The Centers for Learning manages follow-up action with students and coordinates as needed with other campus faculty and staff. The goal is to retain students so they can complete their pursuit of a higher education degree at UMass Lowell.
