Complete the Starfish Intake Form

The Student Intake form in Starfish is a series of questions designed to help your Valpo advisors and support network get to know you, your interests, and your needs. The information you share on the form will help your advisors connect you with resources and support networks to help you succeed. 

  • It should only take a few minutes of your time.

  • There are no required questions, but the more you feel comfortable sharing, the better we will be able to help you.

  • This form is where you will indicate professional school plans after Valpo (medical school, law school, etc.). It is important to select an option if applicable to you! This will help your advisor as you create a plan of study and better support you
