Community College InfoOctober 23, 2017
The personal-finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2017’s Best & Worst Community Colleges, coupled with its state-by-state ranking of the Best & Worst Community-College Systems.
To determine where students can receive the best education at the best rates, WalletHub’s analysts compared more than 700 community colleges across 14 key indicators of cost and quality. The data set ranges from the cost of in-state tuition and fees to student-faculty ratio to graduation rate.
Since many homeschoolers take dual-credit courses from community colleges and/or attend community colleges after graduating their homeschool program, we thought we’d share this info with you.
