Our Commitment to Your Learning

Our Commitment to Your Learning

A central mission of Columbia Basin College is its commitment to your learning and achievement. It’s important to us that you obtain your desired certificate or degree and that you learn what you need in order to be successful when finding employment or transferring to another institution.

During your time at CBC you will come across the term student learning outcomes. These are the knowledge, skills and abilities that you are expected to learn in your various courses, in your program of study, and overall while you are at CBC. The institutional learning outcomes are below. Program outcomes can be found on program webpages and course outcomes are on each syllabus.
