What is Manual Scheduling Costing You?
Astra Suite Demonstration

The Astra Suite contains robust tools to predict student demand for courses and create well-informed schedules that maximize student academic progress and efficiency. Using program templates, the scheduling process begins by measuring student progress against the recommended degree path and evaluating the number of seats needed in an upcoming term. Astra Schedule then optimizes section generation and student schedules and optimally assigns times, days and rooms. Included is the ability to run scenarios, prevent student conflicts, prevent double-bookings, manage instructor schedules and, when possible, pack schedules and assign preferred times. Join us to learn how your campus can benefit from these tools. Suggested audience: proprietary and career colleges, small colleges and universities, colleges and universities offering sequenced or lock-step curriculums.
