As the University prepares for a new term, the Students First Office would like to remind the campus community of important information about the Starfish early alert and scheduling technology.
Starfish Features and Winter Break Schedule:
December 4: Last day of Fall 2019 classes
December 12: Last day of final exams; last day for instructors to issue flags, kudos, and referrals for Fall 2019 courses
December 13: December Commencement; all Fall 2019 flags, kudos, and referrals will be cleared (Note: Cleared tracking items will remain available for historical viewing until the start of spring term)
December 16: Winter Term courses begin; flags, kudos, and select referrals will remain available for instructors to issue to students enrolled in Winter Term courses
December 24-January 1: UNCG Closed for Winter Break
Online appointment scheduling will remain available over the winter break to all faculty and staff who post availability on their Starfish calendars. Faculty and staff who will be away from campus during this
time should remove all calendar availability prior to leaving to prevent scheduling conflicts.
If you are new to Starfish or would like to refresh your knowledge, please consider attending one of our Starfish 101 workshops in the spring. These workshops are designed to introduce undergraduate course
instructors and advisors to the basic Starfish features available to support and enhance their work with undergraduate students. View available workshop times and sign up via workshops.uncg.edu. The spring
workshop schedule will be posted by January 13, 2020.
