WalletHub Ranks Cape Cod Community College #1 in Massachusetts

A big smile for an important Cape institution...

Cape Cod Community College has been ranked #1 community college in Massachusetts in a recent WalletHub study.

In order to determine the best community colleges in the U.S., WalletHub first selected a sample of 715 schools from the list of member institutions in the American Association of Community Colleges.   

We evaluated the schools based on three key dimensions, including: 1) Cost & Financing, 2) Education Outcomes and 3) Career Outcomes. We constructed the three dimensions using 17 total metrics, each grouped with related metrics in the appropriate category and listed below with its corresponding weight. We graded each metric on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the best community college.

Finally, we determined each school’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its overall score and used the resulting scores to rank-order our sample.
