Colby Community College ranked No. 36 out of 821 colleges on WalletHub’s 2016’s Best and Worst Community Colleges. WalletHub, a financial website, based the rankings across 12 key metrics, ranging from the cost of in-state tuition and fees to student-faculty ratio to graduation rate.

The study also found CCC is tied for third best in the nation for the lowest student loan default rate.

“This recognition is a testament to the quality of faculty, staff, and students at Colby Community College,” said college president Seth Carter. “The evaluation metrics used in this ranking are key indicators of academic strength and quality.”

According to WalletHub, the data was gathered from the National Center for Education Statistics, Council for Community and Economic Research, and College Measures. More on the study can be found at wallethub.com/edu/best-worst-community-colleges/15076

Last year Colby was ranked No. 40 on the Wallethub study. Earlier this summer financial advisor SmartAsset used similar indicators and listed CCC as the country’s eleventh best community college.
