STARFISH

Access Starfish through either Blackboard or Peoplesoft. Visit the Students tab and then the My Students subtab. Be sure that Connection is set to “Academic Advisor – Assigned” and the Term to “Active”. *IMPORTANT* the “Advisor – General” connection gives you access to all enrolled BCTC students.
