Getting Started with Starfish

The mission of Starfish is to provide an easy tool to connect students to all the resources that Whatcom Community College has to offer. It also aims to connect you directly with your faculty and advisors, so that there are clearer means of communication to help support you throughout your time at Whatcom.

Starfish allows you to do the following things:

  • Create a degree plan that you can work on with an advisor and refer to from anywhere you have access to internet
  • Schedule meetings with a variety of services on campus and sometimes your instructors
  • View any flags or kudos raised for you by instructors during our Early Alert progress surveys
  • View your academic standing (International Students, visit International Programs staff to ask about your current academic standing)

Once you’ve logged on, you’ll see your dashboard! Your dashboard will include a snapshot of any appointments and meetings, as well as any steps that you may need to help you stay on track and meet your goals.
