NEW for Fall 2020: Make or cancel an appointment with your counselor in Starfish (instructions in Step 6 below!)
At this time, DSPS students are unable to make appointments through this program. Please call the office directly to schedule appointments, 209-588-5130.
Step 1 - Find it!
You can either type the word Starfish in the search bar or you can click on the Starfish logo. The areas to follow are highlighted for you.
Click on the second link that comes up. This will take you directly to the main Starfish login page.
Step 4 - Log in
Use your student email address and password to log in here.
Step 5 - Success Network
Below are the people in your personalized Success Network. If you click on one of the names, a short bio will appear providing information about that person and their position. In the bio area, you will have several options depending upon the counselor and the department in which the counselor works.
NOTE: Please remember that Starfish is a new program at Columbia College, and we are still in the beginning stages.
If you do not see the name of the person you are looking for, type their name in the search bar at the top of the page. Once you see the person you are looking for, click on the three blue dots. As you can see, this gives you several options. Choose what you want to do and click on it.
If you choose to "schedule" an appointment, you will select the reasons (shown below) for scheduling your appointment. Next, click CANCEL (bottom left), or CONTINUE (bottom right).
If you CONTINUED, you will see the counselors that are available on the date you have chosen. Click on the time that best fits your schedule, (bottom of the page) then click CONTINUE.
Next, under "Reason for Visit" (right side of page), you can briefly describe the reason for your visit. On the left side you will see everything you need to know about your appointment: whom with; date, time and location of your meeting.
If you want to cancel an appointment, you can click on the three blue dots at the bottom right of page. You will get an email confirmation of your appointment, once it is made or canceled.
