Connecticut’s community college system, was recently ranked No. 1 in the nation by WalletHub in the financial website’s reports on community colleges and state-by-state community college system rankings.
The state ranking of colleges is based on an analysis of a WalletHub “2022’s Best & Worst Community Colleges” report released this week at a time of rising inflation and individuals looking for ways to stretch their budgets while increasing educational and career opportunities. More information on the “2022’s Best and Worst Community College Systems” ranking is available here.
To determine where students can receive the best education at the lowest tuition rates, the website compared 677 community colleges nationwide across 19 key indicators of cost and quality. The data set ranges from the cost of in-state tuition and fees to student-faculty ratio and graduation rate. For the state-by-state analysis, WalletHub calculated a weighted average of the scores earned by the community colleges in each state and the number of students enrolled at each college.
