The Benefits of Competency-Based Learning

What are competencies? Competencies are skills or knowledge that you learn to demonstrate through your education, each carefully constructed to support successful career building. Each competency we include in your path to a degree was carefully designed by expert faculty with input from employers, with your education and future employment in mind.

Tempo Learning (Competency-Based)

Complete competencies at your own pace, based on your ability to demonstrate understanding of their content. At the beginning of each term, you will map out your learning goals in partnership with your Academic Coach.

You can use what you already know to accelerate your progress, potentially saving you time and money.

If you find materials challenging, you can slow down and spend additional time with them. You can also raise your hand to get support directly from our Faculty Subject Matter Experts.

Traditional (Course-Based)

Courses have preset start, end, and assignment due dates. Knowing this consistent, required schedule can make it easier for some learners to plan their time.

The course-based approach exposes you to new material as well as reinforces and updates your knowledge within an established timeframe.

Your fellow students will be learning the same material and completing assignments at the same time, so if you find yourself struggling, you can connect with them or faculty for additional support.
