School Notes:

Founded in 1956 by the Corning-Painted Post School District, CCC began modestly in a scattering of old buildings in the city of Corning. Today, we encompass a 550-acre main campus on Spencer Hill with a complex of eight buildings plus an observatory and planetarium. We've also expanded our vision to provide services at a variety of off-campus sites throughout Steuben, Chemung and Schuyler counties. Students from age 16 to 70 attend CCC and take courses in 48 different degree and certificate programs leading to careers or transfer to further education. Many doctors, engineers, lawyers, nurses, business people, teachers, technologists and even an astronaut have begun at CCC. Currently, approximately 3,300 full-time equivalent (FTE) students are enrolled, representing 5,000-6,000 students taking our fully accredited credit offerings. Whether your goal is to transfer to a four-year college, enhance your current job skills, or begin a career Corning Community College is the smart choice. CCC provides an excellent educational foundation at an affordable price, and students may attend on either a full-time or part-time basis, depending on individual need. Our unique programs, comfortable learning environment, and dedicated faculty and student support staff create a campus community that enhances the learning experience for each student.

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. It is a form of learning in which students engage in self-paced instruction and assessment of aptitudes rather than attending traditional courses and receiving traditional grades. Seen as the future of community college education by some, and as a cheapened version of a real education by others, competency-based education appears to be here to stay.
