Announces Their Choices of The Best Online Community College in Every State for 2021

NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Premium Schools (, a primary source of information for quality degree programs, has released its list of The Best Online Community College in Every State in the US. To produce the list, Premium Schools looked at all of the community colleges offering online degrees across the country and made their comparison based on certain criteria.

“We looked at every community college in the nation that offers some online degrees. We then sectioned them by state and compared graduation rates, as well as the average cost of attendance after financial aid was applied,” Malcolm Peralty, chief editor of Premium Schools explains on how they came up with the list.

Attending an in-state online community college is beneficial to students simply because it can certainly offer lower costs. As a matter of fact, many states in the U.S. are offering a 100% free college education to first time students within the state they reside. Additionally, a number of community colleges in the country have transfer agreements with other four-year schools. It is another privilege that gives students with outstanding grade point averages (GPA) automatic admission to a bachelor’s degree program.

“Since the expansion of community college systems across America in the 70’s and 80’s, community colleges have quietly been the unsung heroes of American higher ed”, Mr. Peralty stressed. “These schools tend to do a better job of preparing a local workforce in high need areas, for a lower cost, and with the flexibility needed to serve local students, than traditional universities.”
