Survey ranks KS community colleges

August 22, 2018 - 5:23 am

The personal-finance website WalletHub released its report on 2018’s Best & Worst Community Colleges, coupled with its state-by-state ranking of the Best & Worst Community-College Systems. Jill Gonzalez with WalletHub says Kansas did well.

"We looked at a few different things," said Gonzalez.  "Mostly the community colleges themselves to get a good idea of what the system looked like.  Everything from graduation to transfer out rates, to costs, to whether or not free tuition was an option in the state.  And Kansas did pretty well here, it ranked 17th out of 50 states."

Kansas also had several individual schools that did well in the survey.

"Manhattan Area Technical College ranked 20th," said Gonzalez.  "At 36th was Pratt Community College, so two schools already in the top 50.  Other schools that did well were Hutchinson Community College, Cloud County, and Fort Scott."
