STAR

What is it?  STAR is the official degree audit system for UH students. Use STAR to self-monitor your degree progress, verify your registration is correct, as well as viewing unofficial transcripts and your student information. If you have questions about your degree progress as shown in STAR, promptly make an appointment with the appropriate advisor.  Questions regarding the major requirements are to be addressed with the major advisor and questions regarding all other areas of the degree are to be addressed with an Advising Center advisor.
