Starfish Progress Check

In Spring 2023, Mission College is implementing a new platform for student success called Starfish. For Spring 2023, we will use Starfish for a Progress Check (formerly known as Early Alert).

In the future this platform will provide a broad functionality and services for students, faculty, and staff.

This webpage will provide general information, and instructional material so you can understand how to access and use the Starfish features the college has implemented.


Starfish Log In

Students, faculty and staff can access Starfish Log-in in the following ways:

  • From Canvas when you are logged into any of your courses. The log-in is a link on the left-side menu.
  • At the top of any Mission College webpage. Look in the menu at the very top of any page.
  • From your Mission Portal. From the Student Portal, look in "My Student Success Tools." From the Employee Portal, it is in the horizontal list of green boxes near the bottom. 
  • Using the gray button above.

As a student, Starfish creates a success network of communication that helps ensure you are connected and that the right people are able to provide you with assistance as needed!
