Computer Competence and Information Literacy

Understanding how computers function and how to use computer technology is increasingly necessary in many professional pursuits as well as in personal life. As a minimum, students should have the ability to use presentation, word processing, and spreadsheet software. They should also have the ability to access information on the Internet and existing databases.

Students should have the ability to identify, access, evaluate, and select information to fit defined needs and the ability to use that information in an ethical manner.

Each College will specify requirements to achieve computer competence and information literacy.
