What is Starfish? Section
According the PSU Starfish website...
Starfish is an enterprise advising tool that integrates with LionPATH to deliver advising notes, early progress reports (EPRs), and online scheduling of advising appointments. Starfish offers the Penn State community—including faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students—access to a robust student success system that can flag students at risk, pinpoint areas of concern, and connect students with valuable services and early interventions.
Every section at Penn State has an accompanying section in Starfish. We highly encourage the usage of Starfish to notify advisors of the student's progress.
