Colby Community College technical program graduates earn salaries that rank at the top among their peers from Kansas community colleges and second among all two-year public institutions, according to the Kansas Training Information Program (K-TIP) report.

Published annually by the Kansas Board of Regents, the K-TIP reveals that graduates of CCC technical programs earned a median income of $34,171 in 2017. Incomes of Colby grads ranked either first or second since 2014.

“The Kansas Training Information Program provides an excellent benchmark for the quality and demand of our programs,” said CCC President Dr. Seth Carter. ”Our faculty and staff do an excellent job of preparing students for high-demand, high-wage careers.”

CCC has several one and two-year programs in diverse fields. The curriculums include agriculture, allied health, business, criminal justice, dental hygienist, massage therapy, nursing, physical therapist assistant, sustainable/renewable energy and veterinary technology.

The K-TIP report originates from data submitted to the Regents from postsecondary technical education programs offered by six technical colleges, 19 community colleges, and Washburn Institute of Technology. Supplemental Kansas Department of Labor data is used where available. The full report is available on the Regents website.
