Different Student Populations Have Different Needs

With all the scheduling approaches available, how can you design a structured scheduling approach that is most aligned with your different student populations and programs? How will you impact the effectiveness of these changes on students’ velocity to degree completion?
The answer to these questions starts with a deeper understanding of your students, their availability, and other relevant needs. As institutions start to align pathways, advising, registration, and institutional capacity, understanding the options available for structured scheduling is critical. When you have a holistic understanding of all these elements, you can determine how to best leverage your resources to implement an efficient and effective structured schedule, and, ultimately, increase graduation rates.

A Unique Approach for Each Institution

Varying student course placement needs, resource limitations, transfer credits, and
evolving student populations all must be taken into consideration when building a
structured schedule. If these challenges sound familiar, Ad Astra can help discover,
design, and deliver an optimized structured schedule for your institution.
Gathering students’ information on availability for blocks is crucial for
implementing structured scheduling, while understanding capacity and student
needs are critical in trying to institute structured scheduling at scale. Ad Astra’s
Structured Scheduling Service uses your student information system’s data,
along with pathways, to accurately predict course needs and available blocks
for scheduling.
