Helping Higher Ed Raise the Bar

According to the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce, by 2020, 65 percent of all US jobs will require some form of post-secondary degree or credential. Colleges, universities, businesses and trade schools are all working in a variety of ways to ensure more students are attaining a degree or credential that will land them gainful employment in the workforce.

Five Star technology solutions help educational institutions provide clear and valid pathways to degrees and credentials. Our innovative platforms support positive outcomes by unlocking doors to data, which is critical for managing, tracking and reporting on institutional performance.
