Starfish is a retention software solution in use across KCTCS. Bluegrass uses Starfish to keep academic advising assignments, allow students to schedule appointments with advisors and instructors, and to raise concerns about student academic progress.

Schedule Appointments

Students use Starfish to schedule appointments with their academic advisors and instructors. To do so, log in either to Student Self Service or Blackboard and click the Starfish link. Full Directions Here.

Raising Flags

Starfish is also used by instructors to identify students in need of academic assistance. Instructors "raise flags" on students who need help and, in so doing, alert academic advisors and other student support staff who are able to provide assistance to students.

Advisor Evaluation

Use the Evaluation of Academic Advising form to provide an evaluation of your academic advisor.
