Introducing the Starfish System
& Online Scheduling for Counseling & Advising Services
Recently, Montgomery College acquired Starfish Retention Solutions in order to create an online
student success environment and facilitate access to counseling and advising services.
Students will be able to use Starfish to view service availability and schedule appointments
online to meet with a Counselor in person.
If you need help scheduling an appointment or have additional questions please visit the
Starfish Support Website: http://cms.montgomerycollege.edu/starfish/ or See step-by-step instructions
for making an appointment with a counselor.
If you have questions about concrete, specific issues that can be answered over e-mail,
you can complete the Request for Online Advising form.
