Kansas Ranks No. 1 in Community College Students Going on to Four-Year Degrees
The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center’s annual report lists only six states — Virginia, Iowa, North Dakota, Texas and Illinois, along with Kansas — as seeing 20 percent or more of students who started at a two-year public school finish with a degree from a four-year institution. Kansas had the highest rate at 25.2 percent. Missouri, at 17.8 percent, finished ahead of the national average of 16.2 percent.
