The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton has been named the top community college in Arkansas, according to a new ranking from the news website Stacker. 

The rankings, which included a community college for each state in the country, considers various factors regarding quality and affordability. The researchers studied the student-to-faculty ratio, acceptance rate, tuition, six year median earnings, and the employment rate two years after graduation. 

Stacker chose UACCM due to the small campus environment. Particularly, Stacker pointed to the “high degree of personalized instruction” that students enjoy. With a low student-to-faculty ratio of 21:1, Stacker determined that UACCM instructors can go “above and beyond” when working with students. 

UACCM’s affordability was also a strong factor in the choice, which the study considered the ultimate advantage of two-year schools. UACCM’s in-state tuition is $92 per credit hour for residents within Conway County and $102 per credit hour outside of the county. Out-of-state students pay $130 per credit hour. 

In recent years, UACCM’s graduation rate has increased far beyond the rate of other two-year colleges in Arkansas. The rate for the 2016 cohort was 37%, surpassing the statewide average of 31%.
