Starfish by Hobsons

In 2015, Hobson’s student success platform, Starfish, was chosen by the CCC Technology Center’s Education Planning Initiative (EPI) to provide comprehensive solutions to support education planning and degree audit activities as a statewide technology service.  Twelve pilot colleges chosen by the statewide Steering Committee commenced work with Hobsons to turn the existing Starfish Degree Planner into a multi-college district and California-centric solution.  Today, 37 CCCs have signed on for Starfish, 26 of whom are already live on some or all parts of the Platform. 

The Starfish Enterprise Success Platform can help institutions scale their ability to support every student’s academic journey.  Functionality includes onboarding/student readiness tools, early alert, degree planning, holistic advising and case management, calendaring/scheduling, predictive analytics and student intervention inventory. 

In October 2017, Starfish received Complete College of America’s Guided Pathways for Student Success Seal of Approval and was honored to be the recipient of the Gold award for Student Success/Retention in Campus Technology‘s third annual Readers’ Choice Awards.  In November 2017, the CA Community Colleges received a Starfish endorsement by the CA State Academic Senate - https://www.starfishsolutions.com/2017/11/california-guided-pathways/ for guided pathways. 

The CCC Starfish User Group now meets together semi-annually to share outcomes and best practices on this student success platform.  In December 2017, 27 CCCs (180 registrants) participated in a 2-day Starfish Summit at Crafton Hills College - CCCTC Report - Dec 2017 Starfish Summit at Crafton Hills.  Michelle Stricker of Reedley College/SCCCD and Co-Chair of the EPT-DAS Steering Committee says, “Hobsons has helped us create the only true degree plan product that is tailored for California.”
