Is there a deadline for submitting a report?

If you’re interested in having your institution included in AASHE’s Sustainable Campus Index, The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges, or Sierra magazine’s Cools Schools Ranking, there are annual deadlines. Although the specific date may vary slightly from year to year, typically you must have a valid report or have submitted a new report for review by the end of February to be included in that year’s publications.

Otherwise, an institution only needs to register once and there are no deadlines per se. The only time constraints are the expiration dates of:

  • STARS Reports (valid for a maximum of 3 years)
  • Annual subscriptions (required to submit for a rating)

You can monitor the status of your reports and subscriptions in the My Summary section of the STARS Reporting Tool. To learn more about expiring reports, see How long is a STARS report or rating valid?.
