Student Success Portal: Fall 2 early term progress survey launches Oct. 30

The Fall 2, 2020, Early Term Progress Survey launches Friday, Oct. 30, and is open for 10 days, closing Monday, Nov. 9, at 11 p.m. CDT. This survey is distributed to all graduate and undergraduate Fall 2 term courses throughout the United States and at the Leiden and Uzbekistan campuses.

We ask all faculty members to submit their survey(s) during the 10-day window – even if they have no feedback to submit. Students are responding to the flags and kudos raised and find faculty feedback valuable for support and encouragement, connecting them to resources and supports, and helping them persist and succeed in their educational endeavors.

Additionally, data shows that raising concerns (flags) and providing positive feedback (kudos) early is helpful for students and leads to more opportunities for students to achieve success. 

Questions? Reach out to the Starfish Implementation Team at and/or access the resources available at, including a detailed Progress Survey FAQ section and a brief video on how to complete a Progress Survey.
