Boricua College is an independent, private, liberal arts and science, professional not-for-profit college. Recognizing that most Boricua students may be employed, full or part-time, throughout their undergraduate studies, employment in the form of supervised internships and clinical residence may be included as a vital part of the College’s educational program. A prospective student must therefore be ready and able, with assistance from Faculty Facilitators, to build course-work, home, family, community and employment into an integrated program of educational growth and development. At Boricua College, lecture-discussion courses are an excellent way for college students to master some kinds of information. Lecture-discussions about “theoretical studies” however, are only one, of five distinct ways in which students are educated and receive academic instruction at the College. An explanation of each of these modes of instruction and of the way they are integrated into a singular program of student growth and development, follows.

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?

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