“Leveraging analytical tools has significantly improved how we plan and implement our semester schedules. It has reduced the number of students who finish registration without full schedules as well as reduced both section wait-lists and course cancellations. We have also been able to eliminate budget shortfalls in our adjunct budget.”

"Astra Schedule is the most efficient and accurate tool that consistently meets our scheduling needs. Exceptional customer service from every Astra employee; listening and responding to clientele needs; and, staying ahead of the game in scheduling are just a few of the many reasons that JCCC has been a client for so many years."

“Monitor has changed the way we track student registration. Department chairs and deans are amazed at how easily adaptable the application is. They could jump right in and get the data they need to make data-driven decisions.  

Gone are the days when we ‘think’ that a course will fill up the week before classes. We can track exactly when it will happen with little to no work on our end.”
