Abstract:
      A $*$-ring is called $*$-clean if every element of the ring can be written as the sum of a projection and a unit. For an integer $n\geq 1,$ we call a $*$-ring $R$ $n$-$*$-clean if for any $a\in R,$ $a=p+u_1+\cdots+u_n$ where $p$ is a projection and $u_i$ are units for all $i$. Basic properties of $n$-$*$-clean rings are considered, and a number of illustrative examples of $2$-$*$-clean rings which are not $*$-clean are provided. In addition, extension properties of $n$-$*$-clean rings are discussed.
