Starfish Checklist


Faculty play a vital role in delivering a world-class academic experience for Webster University students. The Student Success Portal, powered by Starfish, allows you to connect students to the support and assistance they need as a part of your work as an instructor.  The Webster Leiden campus asks that faculty complete the following activities with Starfish each time they teach.


      Complete your profile to include desired title, contact information, and correct time zone.  Additionally, we recommend adding a photo and setting the login page to “Students -> My Students.”  Instructions for this are available in the Faculty Getting Started Guide

     Complete your Progress Surveys.  You will receive emails inviting you to complete progress surveys.  Please complete these in a timely manner.  How to complete a progress survey, and a timeline for when they are delivered, is described in this guide:

      Raise an Attendance Concern flag for each and every student absence and the academic integrity flag when needed.  Instructions for raising flags are available here:
