FSCJ was ranked #10 by College Choice on their list of the 30 Best Online Community Colleges for 2017. College Choice is an independent online publication dedicated to helping students and their families find the right college.
To determine their list of the 30 best community colleges offering online associate degrees, College Choice correlates data from Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program and individual community colleges. They consider several factors in developing the institutional performance score, including first year retention rates, three-year graduation rates, credentials awarded and other criteria.
They also factor percentage of non-traditional and minority students, percentage of Pell grants and minority graduation rates in order to create a diversity score. Finally they compare online tuition rates to give a sense of the financial investment students would need to make.
