Early Alert System

The early alert system, Starfish, utilized by Mayville State University is an official notice of a student’s academic progress. This alert may show that a student has made progress in a class or that a student needs improvement in a specific area. A Starfish alert may be given to a student at any point throughout the semester. Comments and /or recommendations by the instructor (to include a conference if needed) are encouraged. A Starfish alert provides intervention at the earliest possible opportunity whether is it for academic/personal counseling, or working with the Student Success Center on writing skills, tutoring, etc. Mayville State University shows a compassionate and caring attitude for the student’s academic and personal growth through the Starfish early alert system.
