Access the STARS Reporting Tool

There is no cost to use the online Reporting Tool. Any college or university is welcome to participate, as are other types of secondary, post-secondary and tertiary educational institutions. To gain access:

1. Create an individual AASHE user account if you don’t already have one.

2. Check to see if your institution is already participating. If it is listed in the table, email and we will help you access the existing account. 

3. If your institution is not listed, log in to STARS and register

Registration provides basic access to the Reporting Tool, which will allow you to begin documenting your institution’s sustainability information right away, and, if you wish, to publish an unscored report and earn recognition as a STARS Reporter. 

Subscribe to Earn a STARS Rating

A full access subscription is required to submit a scored report for a STARS Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum rating. When you’re ready to take that step:

1. Log in to the Reporting Tool.

2. At the bottom of the landing page (“Summary”), click the “Order a New Subscription” button.

3. Complete the order form.
