ISLO Criteria Summary
The ISLOs reflect the common expectations about the knowledge, skills, and abilities that Oregon Tech students will acquire and are reflected in the General Education requirements that lay the foundation upon which the major curricula build. Engaging in these ISLOs will support Oregon Tech graduates in developing the habits of mind and behaviors of professionals and lifelong learners.
