General Studies Competencies

Course Competencies describe the major skills/knowledge students must master to pass a course. Assessment of course competencies reflect whether or not students are able to adequately master the content of the course.

General Studies offers courses in communication, mathematics, science, social science, and behavioral science that provide the foundation for degree, certificate, and diploma programs at WITC. General Studies courses will be assessed each year according to an identified schedule with results being posted on a yearly basis.

Prepared Learner courses equip students with the skills necessary to master college-level curricula. Accuplacer test scores, academic history, self-awareness, and/or length of time away from formal education steer students to these courses. Prepared Learner courses carry college credits and are eligible for financial aid. They cannot be counted for degree credit. Students whose placement scores require Prepared Learner enrollment must complete each required class with a grade of C or higher before registering for the subsequent General Studies course.
