The curriculum at the college allows students to tailor their learning experience according to their individual needs and interests, all the while acquiring essential skills that are desired by employers. To achieve this, the college offers a unique pathway to let students demonstrate a set of 10 essentials (skills and capabilities) before they graduate. This system enables them to select one or more courses that have been designated to develop that capability.

Health and Wellness Resources and Career Services particularly help them to stay healthy and make the perfect career decisions.
