A leading higher education resource and information provider ranked Rowan College at Burlington County the top community college in New Jersey after considering a number of criteria to assess quality, student services and students’ income after graduation.

LearnHowToBecome.org released its analysis today that showed RCBC leading the pack.

“It is no surprise that the region’s fastest-growing community college is also the best in New Jersey,” said Burlington County Freeholder Linda Hughes, who serves as education liaison. “Rowan College at Burlington County is a shining example of the exceptional opportunities that exist in Burlington County without high costs.”

All colleges on LearnHowToBecome.org’s leaderboard must be non-profit and hold regional accreditation. Individual scoring is based on objective criteria that include the annual alumni earnings 10 years after entering college, student-teacher ratios, graduation rates and more.

“It is truly rewarding to see our success recognized as the best in New Jersey,” RCBC President Paul Drayton said. “Congratulations to all the Rowan College at Burlington County faculty and staff whose hard work is reflected in this honor. I want to especially thank all of our students who make our work so worthwhile and have helped us become the fastest-growing community college in the region.”
