Welcome to Starfish! It is easy to get started. You can access SUNY Broome’s Starfish system via the MyCollege Launchpad. The navigation menu includes access to a customizable profile and personalized channels that make it easy to schedule the dedicated time you need with your instructors, advisors, or counselors. Starfish can also help you manage the steps you need to take to stay on track and meet your goals.

Tell Us About Yourself
From your Profile, choose the “Tell Us About Yourself” link to complete a short survey about why you’re here and what you hope to accomplish. Advisors and faculty can access your responses and point you in the direction of support services to keep you on a path of success!
The SUNY Broome email is the College’s primary means of communication with students. Be sure to be checking your SUNY Broome email regularly for important messages and notifications.
Select My Success Network from the navigation menu to display your personalized network. This channel lists the people and resources that are available to assist you. For each person or service listed, you will find contact information, supporting websites, and, if online scheduling is enabled, a link to Schedule Appointment. If a service includes a waiting room for walk-in appointments, you can click the “Waiting Room” link to find out how many students are currently in line.
The Services that are most relevant to you are displayed first. Select Show Other Services at the bottom of the page to see additional services.
Any messages sent to you through Starfish will display here. You can see current messages or change to the display to see more (past 6 months, 3 months, etc.).
Click the Courses icon to display information about courses you are enrolled in as well as contacts and available support related to each. It is personalized to show the people and services specific to the courses you are taking and gives you the ability to schedule an appointment or request help related to a course.
Use your personalized Dashboard to stay on top of upcoming appointments, assignments, plans, and recommendations from your instructors.
