Is college worth it? Maybe not if you can't capitalize on the value of degree completion. At Ad Astra, we know the personal and professional benefits of going to college multiply once students complete their credentials. We empower you to provide all students clear completion paths so they can plan their life paths. By facilitating collaboration across institutional stakeholders, our resources put data-informed schedules within reach.

 

Now every course students take meet their degree
requirements, and these same courses are financially sustainable. The outcomes? Improved student retention and faster completion rates. We believe this adds value to your institution, your students, and our society.

The typical student is anything but typical.

College students today aren't your typical 18 to 21-year-olds fresh out of high school. In fact, 37% of college students are 25 or older. An estimated 64% work and 24% have children or other dependents. Yesterday's approach to course scheduling simply doesn't work for today's diverse population.

 

Ad Astra helps you keep pace with these changes by providing real-time data to inform student-centered decision-making. Course scheduling is now based on analytics that predict year-over-year demand, ensuring you keep students on track and on time. What's right for your students is also what makes Ad Astra the right partner for your institution.
