Why Choose CCC?
Colby Community College Named One of the Top 10 Public Community Colleges
Colby Community College has been chosen as one of the top 10 community colleges in the country according to Bankrate, Inc. In a recent release by Bankrate, Inc., “CCC wins the accolade as one of the top community colleges because of its 10 to 1 student/faculty ratio, low in-state tuition, and the fact that 97 percent of full-time, first-time students receive some grant or scholarship aid. In addition to getting a cost break, students also receive direct attention from their instructors.

Why Community College?
Community colleges offer students the opportunity to save money while earning a degree, preparing for transfer to a four-year college or university, or getting training or re-training for a new career. Community college graduates, on average, earn more money and are more likely to be employed than those whose education stopped in high school.
