Colby Community College (CCC) is a two-year institution located in Colby, Kansas, United States. Established in 1964, the 80-acre main campus is located in the heart of Colby with an additional 64-acre agricultural center east of the city. The college is able to accommodate hundreds of off-campus students by offering classes at 24 locations in the 14-county service area, including campuses in Norton and Wakeeney, and through online distance education courses.[1]

In 2013, CCC was selected as one of the Top 10 Community Colleges in the Country according to Bankrate, Inc. Over 900 public two-year institutions were ranked based on six criteria: graduation rate; student retention rate; the student/ faculty ratio; the school's in-state tuition and fees; the percentage of full-time first-time undergraduates receiving financial aid; and the average amount of grant aid they received from federal, state, and private sources combined.[2]
