WINSTED, CT – May 7, 2021 – Northwestern Connecticut Community College has been ranked in 2021, as the 25th Best Community College by College Consensus, a college ratings website that aggregates publisher rankings and student reviews.  College Consensus has compiled a list of the best community colleges in the country for students who are searching for an appropriate college. It utilizes the combined results of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of real student reviews from around the web to provide the most accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school’s reputation and quality available anywhere.

In their report on the value of community colleges, the researchers recognize that the beauty of engaging in community college classes is that they offer the ability to get several needs met. Some people take one class a year, slowly working towards their goals, others take classes at their local community college for personal enrichment, or to increase the skills needed for their current career. While others are on a fast track to transfer to a four-year college or university.

In its compilation of the top 50 Community Colleges in the country, College Consensus identified the metric used to create the rankings: Cost, Reputation, and Student Success Rate. All the schools in their listing offer the proper accreditation, ensuring quality and easy transferability for those who want to ultimately move into a four-year program at an accredited college or university.
