LIBERAL, Kan. — Seward County Community College ranks second in the state of Kansas for student graduation rates. The state released its annual community college data book Feb. 9, listing information about student performance at the 19 community colleges in Kansas.

SCCC is second in graduation rates for the 100% time frame (students completing a degree or certification in the prescribed time for all required courses) and second for the 150% time frame among community colleges in Kansas. The college also had the second-highest retention rate, which measures the number of students who return for the second year of instruction after beginning a program.

“While we need to focus on continually improving, this data is excellent and something we should all be proud of,” said SCCC President Brad Bennett. He congratulated the entire Saints family and students, noting the numbers “demonstrate hard work and commitment to student success.”

SCCC offers more than 40 programs of study, from Adult Basic Education to professional certificates, and two-year Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Applied Science degrees, as well as an Associate of General Studies. The College also maintains articulation agreements with Kansas Board of Regents institutions and multiple colleges and universities in and out of state, enabling students to transfer smoothly and earn a bachelor’s degree.
