The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating Systemâ„¢ (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities to measure their sustainability performance.

Register for STARS

Join the 800+ colleges and universities in 30 countries that have already registered for STARS! To learn more about the program, see "STARS Overview" and "Why Participate?" or download the one page STARS flyer.

Eligibility

Any college or university in the world may participate in STARS. An institution is defined by having a separate and distinct administration (e.g. president or chancellor). Institutions that are part of a larger system must have an administration that is separate and distinct from others in the system to participate independently. If your institution or organization does not meet these requirements, but you believe that you have a compelling case for participation, please email stars@aashe.org.

Registration

If your institution is not already a STARS participant, register today to get started in the online Reporting Tool! There are two different levels of access (full and basic); the benefits associated with each level are outlined below. Institutions that register for free basic access may purchase a full access subscription at any time from within the STARS Reporting Tool. 

To register, you will need a free AASHE user account and the contact information for an administrator at your institution (e.g., president, chancellor, vice president, vice chancellor, or provost) to be copied on the registration confirmation e-mail. You can create an AASHE account here. If you have lost or forgotten your AASHE password, you may re-set it here
