'Recommend to Withdraw' flag now available in Starfish

The Recommend to Withdraw from Course flag is now available for faculty to raise in Starfish. This flag is not included on Starfish surveys - it can only be raised manually by selecting the student in Starfish.

This flag is intended to be used for students who are no longer able to successfully pass a class. It does not automatically withdraw the student from a class. Rather, once raised the flag will send a message to the student with information on the withdraw process and a recommendation to contact a member of their Success Network (Faculty Advisors, School Specialists, Success Coaches) before deciding on whether to withdraw.

The flag is available only for full-term classes and only until the withdraw deadline on April 18.

Please contact John Kulak at with any questions on this flag or on using Starfish.

Kulak, John
