Information Competency Proficiency Requirement

Girl reading in Library

As of Fall 2006, students must fulfill an Information Competency proficiency requirement in order to graduate with an AA/AS degree. The proficiency is fulfilled by either:

  • Successful completion of the proficiency exam
  • A grade of C (or "P") or better in Library 10

Students can take the proficiency exam through the Mission College Assessment Center. A score of at least 70% on the exam is required to fulfill the Information Competency proficiency requirement. Students currently enrolled in Library 10: Information Competency are not eligible to take the exam.
