Ad Astra

Our mission at ACC is to promote student success. This idea drives our decision making at every level — even room scheduling.

Astra Schedule is a web-based scheduling tool that integrates with an institution’s student information system to optimize and analyze space utilization, create “what if” scenarios, manage rooms for classes, events, resources.

Ad Astra provides us with enhanced analytics that can optimize room usage across the Austin Community College District. The system makes event and section scheduling efficient and effective for Campus Managers.
