Starfish is an Undergraduate student case management system used for notifying students of their course progress and for connecting students to faculty and support services at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. The system is driven by faculty participation and completion of Course Progress Reports.

When completed, Course Progress Reports send notifications to students either congratulating them on their progress (Kudos), or initiating a call to action for students to improve their performance (Flags). Additionally, supplemental support in the form of intentional outreach from Academic Advising, CASA, SEAS, and other support personnel across Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi occurs.

Currently, all undergraduate level lecture courses at TAMUCC are supported in Starfish.
