STAR System and your school

STAR System is highly scalable-- it can be put to work at the smallest of schools or at ones with 1000 students.

Minimum Maximum
Instructors 1 50
Classes 1 250
Enrollment 1 1000

STAR System allows you to keep student records and make reports in three different formats: college, high school and other (technical, professional, trade schools, etc.).  These formats vary based on how often grades are awarded and whether courses are program specific, general or both.

College  Courses last for a semester or quarter and then one grade is awarded; students take general courses but also take courses specific to their major or concentration

High school  Courses last for the school year and grades are awarded at intervals during the school year; students do not have majors

Other (technical, professional, trade schools, etc.)  Courses last for a specified period of time and then one grade is awarded; students take courses courses specific to their program

Choose the STAR System format that matches your school.  If the nature of your school changes you can switch to a different format at any time.
