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]

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]
