Fort Scott, Kansas – Fort Scott Community College was named the 9th best community college in the country by SmartAsset, a personal-financial advice platform. SmartAsset “looked at close to seven hundred public community colleges across the country in order to find the best of the best.”

In a blog post on September 2, the company explained “To determine the best we wanted to figure out which colleges offered a low cost education, good return on investment and high success rate.”

FSCC Interim President, Dick Hedges said, “We’ve long known that our college was an exceptional buy for students and parents alike. We’re grateful for the national recognition.”

A.J. Smith, SmartAsset’s Managing Editor, said, "There are many top college lists out there, but few focus on community colleges. At SmartAsset, where we are concerned about college affordability, we wanted to shed light and provide a list suited to the needs of folks interested in higher education without the high costs.”

Smith continues, “We ranked colleges according to the cost to attend the college, the ratio of starting salary to the cost of education and the percentage of students who enroll at the community college, graduate and then go on to transfer to a four-year institution."

SmartAsset declares their mission to be “Transparency through technology. We use our software and data to provide simple, easy to understand answers to complex financial questions.” The Wall Street Journal; The New York Times; BBC News; and Forbes Magazine have cited SmartAsset’s financial analysis.

The SmartAsset report also found that Pratt Community College was the tenth best in the country. No other Kansas schools were ranked.
