Graduation and Transfer Information

Hundreds of Star Career Academy’s current students at the time of its closing had completed sufficient hours and coursework to complete their programs and will be graduated. Any students who are eligible for graduation will be contacted directly by a Star representative by November 23 to inform them by phone and confirm their mailing addresses to send transcripts.

For all other students, Star has been in touch with a number of educational institutions that have invited students to complete their studies at these other schools. A list of institutions that have offered to evaluate Star students’ transcripts and eligibility for transfer is available here.


Transcript Information

Student transcripts will not be available at the local campus. For a copy of your transcript, please email transcript@starcareer.edu.

Please include the location of the campus you attended, your full name, date of birth and current address in your request.


Recent Catalogs

Some students may benefit from having access to recent course catalogs as they seek to transfer credits to other institutions.


Accreditation and Acceptance

Star Career Academy has been accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, and Star’s accreditation has been recognized by U.S. Department of Education. The school’s closing should have no impact on the certifications, transcripts or other credentials Star has provided to students and alumni. As always, acceptance of credit by any institution is up to the discretion of the receiving institution.


Student Loan Information

We will be performing the required Return to Title IV refund calculations over the next 30 days. Once that process is completed, you can begin your application for student loan discharge.


Closed School Loan Discharge

Star Career Academy hopes that you will be able to continue pursuing your educational goals at another institution. However, if you are unable or choose not to do so, you could be eligible for a discharge of your federal student loan. Additional information and application forms are available from the U.S. Department of Education at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/closed-school.
