When will the next version of STARS be released?

AASHE will launch the second major revision of STARS, version 3.0, in the second quarter of 2024. To assist participants in preparing for STARS 3.0, advance copies of the updated Technical Manual and other materials are being made available on the STARS website.

Once the new version has been launched, each institution will be able to continue working on its next v2.2 report if that is preferable or else upgrade to v3.0 and begin working under the new version. Submitting a report under v2.2 during this period will automatically upgrade the institution to v3.0, i.e., it will only be possible to submit one v2.2 report once v3.0 is live.

Eighteen months after the launch of v3.0, AASHE will begin contacting institutions that have not upgraded to the new version to encourage them to make the transition. Our aim is to have all participants working under STARS 3.0 within two years of its launch.
