Who has permission to view flags raised in Starfish?

Privacy is important to us. Therefore, only the student, the flag raiser, and members of the student’s success network that have been granted viewing permissions are able to view flags raised on a student. Note, Starfish Early Alert is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Protection Act (FERPA).

What is a Student Success Network?

The Student Success Network consists of members of the Campbell University community that participate in your academic success. Individuals must have a current relationship with the student during a semester (e.g. instructor, faculty advisor, or administrator) to be a part of the student’s success network. Therefore, the Student Success Network may change each semester. Members of the Student Success Network are not able to view flags that have been raised.
