Using Starfish to Take Attendance

Implementation of the attendance policy continues for the Fall 2020 semester. Attendance tracking and related outreach can help connect students to resources at MCC that may assist in overcoming their obstacles to participating in classes.

Outreach to students with attendance concerns will be triggered by absences as recorded by faculty. Students will receive email alerts once they have been marked absent for 10%, 20%, and 30% of a class. Additionally, students will receive phone call outreach from a staff member once they have missed 15 classes across all their courses in the semester.

Attached please find instructions on how to use Starfish to keep attendance for Face-to-Face or Remote classes, and for Online (SLN) classes. For questions on how to use Starfish, please contact John Kulak at
