The biggest educator of college students in the United States is community colleges. In fact, 41 percent of all U.S. undergraduates study at a community college.
WalletHub ranked over 700 schools from the American Association of Community Colleges to find the 10 best institutions. The schools were evaluated on cost, educational outcome and career outcome. The top-ranking schools are mostly in rural locations, enroll small student bodies and have low student-to-teacher ratios.
Over half of the top 10 community colleges on Wallethub's list serve large Native American populations. Leech Lake Tribal College tops the list as the best community college and 88 percent of the study body identifies as Native American.
