WalletHub slams Owens Community College in new survey

According to a new study by personal finance website WalletHub, South Dakota is the best state in the nation to do just that.

The study named South Dakota as the state with the best community college system in the country.

It looked at 14 key indicators of cost and quality in each state.

The study comes at the start of the 2017-18 school year with several states, such as NY and Rhode Island, offering free community-college education.

Individual community colleges vary in performance and affordability.

Analysts point out the data set ranges from the cost of in-state tuition and fees, to student-faculty ratio, to graduation rate.

Clovis Community College came in at 126th; with "Cost and Financing" at 187th, "Education Outcomes" 155th, and 346 in "Career Outcomes".

Community colleges offer a ideal solution - and a better alternative to forgoing higher education altogether. Based on those rates, students who earn their general-education credits at a community college before transferring to an in-state public four-year university would save $12,260 over two years on tuition and fees alone. The college received much lower scores in cost and financing (216) and career outcomes (149).

Furthermore, the study only took into account the states with at least two community colleges.
