EdSmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and rankings, has named Norwalk Community College (in Norwalk, CT) to its 2020 ranking of Best Colleges and Universities in Connecticut.
EDsmart’s ranking of the Best Colleges & Universities in Connecticut is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based primarily on affordability, while also considering factors such as graduation and retention rates and post-graduation salaries according to NCES College Navigator reporting and post-graduation salaries according to College Scorecard.
“It is important to recognize the colleges and universities that go above and beyond,” said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart.” Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to higher education.”
According to EdSmart, the Best Colleges in Connecticut ranking allows students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals. The company notes that “beyond providing affordable education, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place a high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates, and post-graduation salaries.”
The EDsmart 2020 ranking for the Best Colleges & Universities in Connecticut ranks Yale University #1 as the best college in Connecticut, with Central Connecticut State University in second place, and UConn Storrs in third.
