“We believe our online programs should be equitable to our on ground coursework in regards to academics, educational outcomes, accessibility, and instructor availability,” said Dr. Lenny Klaver, NCMC President. “Our number one ranking comes from our faculty and staff dedication to our students, and the genuine care they have for students to obtain successful outcomes.”

Each community college highlighted on the rankings lists received a score based on several important factors, including retention rate, graduation rate, and percentage of online enrollment data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).  All community colleges offering at least one online associate degree were considered eligible for rankings.
