About ad astra

Ad Astra is the trusted partner of colleges and universities committed to graduating more students faster.

Through data-informed planning and course scheduling, we empower institutions to remove barriers to students degree completion while ensuring program financial sustainability.

The Ad Astra difference is measurable.

Declining enrollments, changing demographics, hard-to-predict modality demands: today's higher education landscape is shifting. Institutions are called to be student-centric as they respond to these changes, all while maintaining the financial health of their programs. Can software make this possible? Yes - but not on its own.


We believe people and partnerships are what make software implementation a success. It's through partnership that we help you establish and maintain a continuous improvement framework to realize sustainable results over time. This is achievable because Ad Astra is staffed with experts from higher education that help you to navigate change, establish goals, and drive results. That's the Ad Astra difference.
