Cypress College — #1 2018 Best California Community Colleges — Niche.com

#1 in California

Cypress College’s 2018 selection as the top community college in California isn’t just some designation, rather a ranking based on metrics derived from measures such as completion and transfer.

Compiled and administered by Niche, the ranking is based on a rigorous analysis of academic, financial, and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education, as well as millions of reviews from students and alumni.

These metrics account for both student success, in areas such as completion and university transfer, as well as student perceptions of the campus and the college’s faculty.

Cypress College also ranked #3 of 228 mid-size community colleges nationally, and #27 of all community colleges nationally.

“This result is a reflection of the integrity and commitment each of you has made in support of our mission,” said Cypress College President JoAnna Schilling, Ph.D. “The work you do on behalf of our students makes a difference each and every day, and I cannot thank you enough for your efforts.”
