How long is a STARS report or rating valid?

STARS reports and ratings are valid for three years from the date of publication. 
Upon publication, each report is assigned a “Valid Through” date. When that date passes or the report is superseded by a more recent one, it will automatically be removed from the list of Current Ratings and placed in the Report Archive, where it will remain publicly accessible. Ratings that are no longer valid are marked as expired.
Please note that submitting a new report does not immediately result in a new rating. There is a review and revision process that must be completed before the report is published and the new rating is awarded. Once that process has been completed and the report has been published, the list of Current Ratings is immediately updated. 
Reports published prior to July 17, 2020 were valid for three years from the date they were submitted to AASHE.
