COVID-19 Updates:

Starfish CONNECT

To get started using Starfish Connect, log into Blackboard and click the Starfish link under My UC > Tools. Following the instructions in the guides and videos below, staff are able to set up office hours to allow students associated with them to schedule appointments.

NOTE: As of September 11, 2018, Starfish has an updated user interface. This moved the top navigation bar to a menu button icon in the upper left hand corner that will open the full menu. The guides and videos below are being updated to reflect this change. The rest of the steps are still the same procedure.

How do students schedule?

Unless an advisor is also registered as a student at UC, they don't have a way to see, what the scheduling process looks like for a student. The short point-and-click module below is developed to show what this process looks like (module opens in a new window/tab).

Device notice: The module illustrates what the screen looks like on a desktop/laptop. Accessing Starfish from a smartphone and certain tablets looks slightly different, but the process is the same.
