Kaskaskia College Ranked as one of the Nation’s Best Community Colleges


Kaskaskia College is known for quality education and student success.  Those efforts have been recognized by a national internet company that has ranked KC as the second best community colleges in the State of Illinois.  When looked at from a national perspective, WalletHub identified KC in the top 8% of over 700 community colleges in the United States.


WalletHub determines school rankings based on metrics including cost of tuition and fees, amount of scholarships students receive, per pupil spending by the college, along with student to faculty ratios, and school spending efficiency.  Additionally the rates associated with retention, graduation, and transfer are factored in.


“We have always emphasized the value of a Kaskaskia College education,” said KC President Dr. Penny Quinn.  “Through our student-centered programs, taught by highly qualified faculty, KC provides educational and work force training that opens doors for thousands of students."  “It’s absolutely wonderful to see the dedicated work that our staff and faculty provide for students being recognized on a national level.” 


WalletHub, a financial services website, obtains its data through the National Center for Education Statistics, Council for Community and Economic Research and College Measures.
