If members of a student’s Success Network have enabled their Starfish calendars, students can schedule appointments online through Starfish.
The first implementation phase will provide Instructors, TAs, and Advisers the ability to allow students to schedule appointments through Starfish. Later implementation phases will explore how to use online scheduling for groups (e.g., an advising center) and for individuals in other roles (e.g., counselors in student support offices).
|Primary Adviser||Primary Advising||Appointment available to assigned advisees|
|General Adviser||General Advising||Appointment available to any student|
|General Adviser||Walk-in Advising||Advising availability for any student on a first-come basis|
|Instructor and TA||Office Hours||Availability to students enrolled in a course|
For example, a faculty member who teaches a course and has assigned advisees might set up appointment availability through a combination of Office Hours and Primary Advising appointments.
In another example, a Liberal Arts adviser who works with pre-major students and needs to see both assigned advisees and students who are not yet in Liberal Arts could set up a combination of Primary Advising appointments and General Advising appointments.
If users are on a Google or Microsoft Exchange server for calendaring, Starfish and the user’s personal calendar can talk back and forth. (See the linked Starfish documentation for how to set up this ability). If users are not on one of these systems (e.g., are on UCS), the user will get an ical attachment each time a student schedules an appointment.
