School Notes:

Court Reporting Institute of Dallas began as a court reporting program in 1978 inside a college called the Fashion and Art Institute of Dallas. In 1980, the court reporting program received approval from the National Court Reporters Association. In 1983 the Fashion and Art Institute is sold and the court reporting program becomes its own stand-alone college called the Court Reporting Institute of Dallas. For more than 25 years, the Court Reporting Institute of Dallas has done one thing, and one thing only – Train the Best Court Reporters in the World! Unlike other colleges that simply have court reporting as one of the many programs they offer, CRID only offers one program, an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Court Reporting. In the year 1985, College becomes first private career school to be granted the authority to award an Associate of Applied Science degree by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Court Reporting Institute is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award Associate's Degrees. The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools is listed as a nationally recognized accrediting agency by the U.S. Department of Education and is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

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.

Competency-Based Education: Better for Your Academic Success?
In recent years, interest in competency-based education has risen drastically.
