The Competency-Based programs (CB) faculty supported self-paced learning model allows students to complete their courses based on their ability to master a skill or competency on their own schedule under the guidance of faculty members. This method is tailored to meet different learning styles and can lead to more efficient student outcomes for students that are highly motivated and prefer more autonomy.
Competency-Based programs, or CB, can require more self-discipline than the traditional college class model because you have more autonomy while learning. Be prepared to work independently, managing your own time and organization during the term.
CB allows students to consume content faster and around their own schedule during the course with the guidance of their faculty. This allows you to complete your degree faster and in a manner that may fit your demanding work and life commitments better.
