For two-year institutions it should be modified in the future to include certificates and diplomas. As some students technically do not graduate with an AS degree but enter the workforce with certificates and diplomas. More 2 year institutions would submit to STARS if it would also include certificates and diplomas, as they do graduate and can be employed in the workforce with either of those credentials.
