Pratt Community College Recognized 2017 Learning Excellence

12 June 2017

Pratt Community College has been recognized for offering one of the best learning environments in Kansas for 2017 by LearnHowToBecome.org (LHTB), a leader in education and career resources.

“It was important to recognize the colleges and universities that are going above and beyond the standard for learning,” said Wes Ricketts, co-founder of LearnHowToBecome.org. “These schools have proven that their learning environments are exceptional and continuing to improve.”

The full ranking list and complete methodology can be viewed here: Best Colleges in Kansas – http://www.learnhowtobecome.org/college/kansas/
To be considered for this ranking, schools must be institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit institutions and offer at least ten total programs. The main data points considered when ranking universities include:

  • In-state tuition and fees for undergraduates
  • Student to teacher ratio
  • 6 Year Graduation Rate
  • % of students receiving institutional financial aid (first time- full time undergrads)

LearnHowToBecome.org has distinguished their ranking measurement by including the median earnings of alumni ten years after enrolling in college. Factoring in salary earnings alongside tuition and financial aid offers a more accurate assessment of the return on investment a university offers.
