School Notes:

Manor College is a private, Catholic, co-ed college that was founded in 1947 by the Byzantine Ukrainian Sisters of Saint Basil the Great. In 1959, Manor College was chartered and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The College was approved by the State Council of Education Department of Instruction on June 17, 1964. The curricula at Manor are planned to embody the College's commitment to provide transfer and career-oriented programs of study which respond to the current changing needs of today's world. Through these programs, the student is prepared for transfer to a four-year college or university, while the career-oriented student, upon completion of a career program, is prepared for employment. The college offers Degrees and Certificates in Allied Health, Liberal Arts, Business Studies and Legal Studies.

Students Stuck for Four Years to Earn an Associate?s Degree
A recent report revealed that many California community college students take twice as long to get an associate’s degree as is normally required. While community college is less expensive than attending a four-year institution, students who drag out their degree programs lose much of that savings in additional tuition, fees, textbooks, and lost wages. In this article, we examine the reasons why some students take so long to graduate.
Undeserved Community College Accreditation: Abuse of Power?
Complaints about the current system of accrediting community colleges, combined with the quickly changing scope of community college education and how it’s delivered, may soon necessitate changes in the way that community college programs are accredited.
Competency-Based Education: Better for Your Academic Success?
