Orange County Community College ranked in Top 50 Best Online Community Colleges for Financial Aid Assistance

Orange County Community College recently ranked in OnlineCollegePlan's Top 50 Best Online Community Colleges for Financial Aid Assistance article.

For this Top 50 ranking, they compared all of the two-year community colleges and comparable technical colleges that are located within the United States that offer a selection of online academic programs for distance-learners. They scored and ranked each community college based on the following ranking criteria:

  • 1/3: Student Financial Aid Rates;
  • 1/3: Freshman Retention Rates and;
  • 1/3: Graduation Rates

These criteria were used to determine which of the colleges might best suit students that are serious about obtaining a degree online without breaking the bank.

John Ivankovic, Director of Financial Aid, was pleased the College had been recognized: "We are happy to receive this recognition, which reflects the dedicated work of our Financial Aid and Student Services staff. We have also seen great success from our online educational videos, which have helped freshmen students and their families navigate the financial aid process with more knowledge and less stress."
