Starfish transitions to Hawk Central

As of May 13, 2024, Starfish has transitioned to Hawk Central. Faculty and staff who were active employees for the Spring 2024 semester have already been granted access.

Hawk Central provides staff and advisors with a holistic view of a student, including past advising activity, alerts, commendations, courses, demographic data, and notes. Similar to past systems, it also has student appointment scheduling features.

In Hawk Central, faculty concerns are made visible to academic advisors and other support staff, equipping them to assist in addressing, resolving, and closing the loop with you on student issues. You can also give commendations to students who are doing well or showing improvement.

To access Hawk Central, visit and click LOGIN WITH NETID. Additional resources, support, and training requests can be found on the Hawk Central website.
