  20. 20. CBE Messaging • What is competency-based education? – Competency based education means you learn at your own pace. If you’ve already mastered a subject, you can test out and get credit for the class. If you need to spend more time on something else, you can do that, too. It’s not about spending time in class – it’s about learning and understanding what you need to know.
  21. 21. CBE Messaging • Will my diploma look any different than if I had taken traditional classes? – No. Your diploma and transcript will look just like the ones students in traditional classes get. This college already offers the business transfer degree, so four-year universities will accept this degree just like any other transfer degree.
