How we support students:
Starfish Early Alert System
One of our Student Success Advisors would love to work one-on-one with your student to help set personal and academic goals to help him or her be successful during their time at UNH. Just as an athletic coach would do, Success Advisors help students get motivated to reach their full potential. By working with an advisor, students can develop skills and strategies to combat academic challenges.
Starfish Early Alert
Starfish is a retention tool that the University of New Haven will utilize to improve student success and facilitate communication among students, faculty, and staff across campus. For more details about how this program works, please check out our Starfish Webpage.
All faculty members who teach first-year students are required to submit midterm grades. Midterm grades are recorded to Banner (the online student record system) and are then accessible to Success Advisors in the Center for Student Success. Midterm grades allow coaches to pinpoint students who may be having difficulty in one or more courses and provides an opportunity for conversations about getting extra support in those subjects.
The Center for Student Success houses two honor societies that engage two first-year populations. Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) recognizes first-year students who have achieved at least a 3.5 GPA in their first semester and are in the top 20% of the incoming class. Students who accept the invitation to join will be inducted into the honor society in the spring semester.
Tau Sigma is an honor society designated for first-semester transfer students. The University of New Haven chapter was founded in 2011.
