Ad Astra Updates and Available Training Dates
As we enter into another great semester in 2020, we continue to strive to be more efficient in streamlining our services. In doing so, we've made changes to better enhance your experience as you navigate through the Ad Astra Scheduler.
Updates: New look that reflects MCC's colors, Astra home page that provides instant information on events/classes happening on both campuses. A Request an Event link on the home page for your convenience, and a list of important academic dates. A new short form for the Downtown Campus was recently created for users to use when requesting events that do not require tech support, resources, or catering needs. You've spoken and we are listening, and this is why we are constantly working at simplifying forms for ease of convenience for our users. There is more to come in 2020 so stay tuned for additional updates throughout the year.
Trainings: Are you interested in learning how to request facilities for an event using the site? Do you need a refresher?
If yes, please note both campuses will be hosting trainings to answer any questions you may have as well as review the process for submitting online requests.
