Core Competency/Student Survey:

Core Competency tests are graduate assessments for those students earning an associate degree. However, the Core Competency testing for the May 2020 graduates has been permanently suspended due to the Covid-19 virus and the subsequent closing of the college campuses. The suspension of this graduate assessment does not affect a student’s graduation processing or eligibility.
