Ad Astra Information Systems is pleased to announce the launch of AccessToCompletion.com (A2C), a new online resource to help higher education leaders and administrators improve college retention, affordability and completion rates. The website aims to become an indispensible resource for institutional leaders and policymakers looking for a clearinghouse of statistics, expert advice and community ideas around making higher education more efficient and affordable.

“Admissions and funding for higher education have become more accessible to students; we have to focus on helping them succeed and graduate as quickly as possible,” said Tom Shaver, Ad Astra’s founder and CEO. “The future is bright for higher education institutions that embrace change, adapt to economic realities, and keep student success at the center of everything they do.”

“Higher education value is increasingly measured by how good an institution is at helping students complete degrees in timely and cost-effective ways,” Shaver added. “A2C content is pragmatic, and we believe, highly applicable to the challenges institutions face. Our vision is that A2C will be a key driver to progress in completion rates and student success.”

In addition to providing original articles, videos and info-graphics, A2C curates the best online content related to successful examples of reducing college costs and increasing institutional efficiencies, as well as offering proprietary calculators that allow institutions to model “what-if” scenarios related to classroom scheduling and capacity optimization.

A2C is a product of Ad Astra Information Systems, a firm dedicated to using the schedule to improve outcomes. They currently work with more than 800 colleges and universities in North America.
