Institutions that have not already done so will have their current submission set automatically upgraded to STARS 2.1 on May 31, 2017.
The revision process is governed by STARS Steering Committee in line with the STARS Technical Development Policy:
- Administrative Updates (e.g. to clarify credit criteria and correct typos) are released no more often than quarterly.
- Substantive Changes (e.g. 2.1, 2.2) are released as necessary, but no more frequently than once per year.
- Major Revisions (e.g. 3.0, 4.0) are released as necessary, but no more frequently than once every two years.
