Because of our limited resources we are shifting our focus from advocacy to education. We've found this is the best way to reach the largest number of people. And, through our educational efforts, we can often teach students about the law and their responsibilities BEFORE there's a problem.

For information about CO-STAR's educational programs please click here.

However, we are inundated by requests for assistance every year and make efforts to help students and professionals alike at every opportunity. You can help us in this mission by contributing now through the Network for Good. Even a small donation will allow us to expand our ability to help college students and continue our advocacy and counseling of educational rights.

CO-STAR is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are deductible to the full extent of the law.

And, if you're interested in educating yourself, consider picking up a copy of The College Student's Guide to the Law: Get a Grade Changed, Keep Your Stuff Private, Throw a Police-Free Party and More! which covers all areas of the law pertinent to your education. Because let's face it. With all of the reference manuals you're going to have on your bookshelf, this is the only one that can help keep you out of jail.

If you do choose to send us a request for help, please note that we cannot respond fully to every email. If your problem has not been addressed in the book, or cannot be solved through simple research and analysis, we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Please be patient, however, since the demand is high and the staff is underpaid.

If you would like to apply for help, please fill out this form.
