We have worked closely with the LionPATH team to bring the academic standing attribute into Starfish. On the overview tab for individual students, Academic Standing is now one of the attributes listed. Academic advisers can now use the Filter button on the Students tab to search for all students who are in Academic Warning status.
One important caveat to keep in mind: There are some first-year students who have been given academic warning inaccurately. First-year students are not to be placed on academic warning while they have 18 or fewer credits completed. According to the Senate policy, summer credits would be excluded for first-year students. The University Registrar’s Office will be correcting the standing for these students.
Academic advisers can use the “Academic Review” note and a series of Flags, Referrals, and Kudos to provide students feedback on their academic progress. Every tracking item sends a pre-configured message to the student, and advisers can add additional comments to that message. When adding additional comments, advisers do not need to include a salutation or signature, because Starfish will add those automatically.
