Fall 2021 Starfish Update 

What’s coming next: Winter 2022 will bring many exciting developments: the student portal will open on January 3rd, at which time students will book appointments with advisors directly in Starfish. Throughout winter, we’ll focus on supporting student usage of Starfish and making technical updates as we transition from HP3000 to ctcLink.  Throughout the year, you can expect to hear more about Starfish via quarterly DAAG announcements and at presentations in divisional meetings. 

What if I have more questions? Check the Starfish project webpage for more information about the long-term timeline, project teams, and other details.  You can email with any questions.  Finally, you can meet with the implementation project manager, Moriah Shistle, during weekly open office hours throughout fall term.  Check the Shoreline employee calendar for details.
