  • Academic Alerts The Starfish academic alert system allows the course instructor to easily inform a student that they may be at-risk in specific areas within the course.  Advisors assigned to the student also receive notification of the instructors concern. Instructors and advisors can then take a coordinated approach to help students utilize campus resources and develop an action plan.
