SHEEO Query RE Competency-based Degree Programs

On August 18, 2013, SHEEO sent the following query to its finance officers:

  • Do your public state higher education institutions offer Competency-Based Degree programs? 
  • If so…which institutions:  What is the institution’s classification? Two-year, four-year, or medical?
  • How are the programs funded? 
  • Do the programs receive state funding?
  • If so, how does the funding work? Financial aid, direct reimbursement, allocation funding, or start-up funds only?
  • Are the programs accredited by a different body than other degree programs? If so, by which accrediting body?
