Financial Health

Students want schedule stability. Your institution wants financial stability.

With predictable schedules, students are more likely to stay enrolled from start to graduation. Reliable enrollments ensure the financial sustainability of your programs. Ad Astra leads the way for both of these journeys as you build course schedules to match student demand. 

“Our scheduling and rescheduling is much easier now. Ad Astra has paid huge dividends for us in both time and cost savings.”

Financial Health:
A Success Story

“Ad Astra provides insight to look deeper into the financial implications of the schedule and course offerings. By helping us analyze student need alongside the financial impact of right-sizing course offerings, we can align course offerings with program pathways.”

James Lynch, AVP for Academic Affairs, Mohawk Valley Community College
