General Education Assessment


General Education

SFCC has five general education learning outcomes.  These outcomes are referred to as Essential Skills Outcomes or ESOs.  Through the assessment of these ESOs, we demonstrate our commitment to educational achievement and improvement across the curriculum and in co-curricular domains.
