Ad Astra Upgrade


The Ad Astra Implementation Team (Courtney Belluccio Sprague (Events), Lyndsey Presutti (Academics), Yolanda Johnson (Events), Marisa Laspina (Academics), Anne Kirkpatrick (DCC Academics), Toni Custodio (Co-Project Leader), Christine Accorso(Co-Project Leader) and Oleg Vyshnyvetskyi (Computing)  have been testing for the last few months in preparation for an upgrade to the system.  The new version provides a user friendly interface that features new performance calendars and academic resources and workflow. 

Ad Astra is a scheduling tool used by the college that enhances capacity, efficiency, and student success!  The effective scheduler places all activities on a central campus calendar, efficiently allocates academic resources and has the potential to contribute to critical initiatives such as capacity for enrollment growth.   The faculty procedure for requesting academic classrooms will not be changed.  

The Ad Astra system will be down on Monday and Tuesday, July 13-14, 2015 in order to upgrade the system.  We will keep the college community informed when the system will be fully functional. Please note the process for creating an event request will remain the same. Our commitment is to continue working on making the system more efficient for our academic and specialized event needs. Training will be scheduled at a later time. Stay tuned for updates!
