The Financial Aid Office at South Seattle College has exciting news! We’ve upgraded our student appointment system to the campus-wide Starfish system which offers many new benefits. Our new appointment system gives you an exact start time for your appointment so no more waiting for text message updates. If you schedule your appointment from home, you can now choose a phone appointment so you won’t even need to leave the house, or you can opt for an in-person appointment if you prefer.

Starfish appointment system

Starfish is our new student portal system. Your Financial Aid and Academic Advising Offices both utilize Starfish’s appointment system, so if you made an appointment with Academic Advising recently, you may be familiar with the process. As more offices on campus begin using Starfish, you will have access to more features such as seeing notes from your advisors, scheduling multiple appointments all in one place, and even viewing support networks for your courses!
