Starfish Referral Instructions

1. Access Starfish via MyDixie

After logging into MyDixie, select the "Faculty & Advisers" tab. At the bottom of the page, select "Starfish Early Alert." Select "Click here to open Starfish" to be redirected.

2. Find the Student You'd Like to Refer

After accessing Starfish, select the "Students" tab at the top of the screen to bring up a list of your students. Either select a student from the list or use the "Search" feature immediately above the list on the left-hand side of the screen to search for a student by name. Once you've identified the student you'd like to refer, click his or her name.

3. Create the Referral

Below the student's name, in the upper left-hand portion of the screen, select "Referral." From the first drop-down menu, select "Writing Center Referral." Add comments to the referral regarding the topics you'd like a tutor to work on with your student (these comments will also be visible to your student). To submit the referral, click "Save" in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
