New York’s best and worst community colleges


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A new Wallethub study shows the best and worst community colleges across the United States. According to the report, community colleges offer students the ability to get higher education without breaking the bank, but they do vary in quality and affordability.

During the 2021-2022 school year, the report said tuition and fees for full-time, in-state enrollment at a public two-year college averaged $3,800 per year versus $10,740 at a public four-year school and $38,070 at a four-year private school. Community colleges also often provide more flexible schedules, smaller class sizes, and rigorous coursework.

To rank the community colleges, WalletHub evaluated 677 schools in the U.S. based on cost and financing, education outcomes, and career outcomes. These are the best and worst community colleges in New York, according to Wallethub.
