LearnHowToBecome.org, a leading resource provider for higher education and career information, has determined its ranking of the best colleges in Pennsylvania for 2017, and Manor College in Jenkintown was ranked No. 5 among two-year colleges.
“These Pennsylvania colleges and universities offer not only great degree programs but also excellent resources for preparing students for post-college careers,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.org.
“They have demonstrated superior overall value to students by providing an overall positive, high-quality educational experience.”
To be included on the “Best Colleges in Pennsylvania” list, institutions must be regionally accredited, not-for-profit schools. Each college is also ranked on metrics like the variety of degree programs offered, the number of employment and academic resources offered, financial aid availability, graduation rates, and annual alumni earnings 10 years after entering college.
Harcum College checked in at No. 7 on the list, while Montgomery County Community College was No. 15.
Arcadia, Bryn Mawr, Gwynedd Mercy, Haverford, Ursinus, and Rosemont all were among the 50 schools to make the list of the Best Four-Year Colleges.
