MCC gets top ten ranking on state list

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

McLennan Community College in Waco was named the tenth best community college in Texas, according to Schools.com.   

Nearly half the college students in the state attend community colleges - translating to more than 710,000 students in over 60 public two-year schools, according to the website.

The site used a 10-point scale to rank 66 Texas two-year institutions using six criteria: percentage of students enrolled in distance education; total cost of attendance, including tuition and fees, plus books & supplies; student-to-faculty ratio; graduation rate; transfers to four-year colleges in Texas per 1,000 students; and flexibility.

MCC's flexible class schedule — including evening, weekend and online offerings — combined with the availability of an on-site daycare “makes higher education more manageable for parents, working professionals and remote students,” according to the rankings released in June. Other areas that impressed the site included the availability of Success Coaches, financial aid counseling, the campus food pantry and the Distinguished Lecture Series.

Galveston College was ranked #1 in the state.  Navarro College at #9 was the only other central Texas community college ranked in the top ten, besides MCC.
