LSSC utilizes Starfish to provide an online student success environment that connects students with needed services like academic advising, tutoring, career services, and financial aid – with the aim of improving student success, satisfaction and retention.  In addition, instructors can communicate directly with students regarding their progress in class by raising “flags” when concerns arise or by sending “kudos” to acknowledge positive trends or achievement. 

Starfish is a one-stop shop to help students stay on track and achieve their academic goals!
