CCM named top college in N.J. for associate degree

The County College of Morris has been named No. 1 for “Best for Associate Degrees” in the 2021 “The Best Colleges in New Jersey” ranking conducted by Intelligent.

CCM also earned the No. 19 position on the list of Top 50 Best Colleges in New Jersey that includes such prestigious institutions as New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology. CCM is one of only two community colleges listed in the Top 20 in that ranking.

“The Best Colleges in New Jersey” by Intelligent is a recently released list of the top colleges and universities in the state. The rankings are based on data that looked at curriculum quality, graduation rates, post-graduate employment and potential return on investment. Intelligent provides research and information to help students make informed decisions about higher education and to transition from college to the workforce.

The landscape for students seeking a college education is changing. For students looking to enter college while keeping costs low and exiting with higher paying salaries, CCM has proven to be an excellent choice. The college’s recent ranking is No. 44 out of over 1,100 community colleges in the U.S. for “Community Colleges Whose Graduates Earn the Most Money,” as reported in Newsweek.

The college also continues to maintain its No. 1 position in the state in PayScale’s “Best Community Colleges in New Jersey by Salary Potential,” a distinction it has held for four years in a row. Whether local or located across the country, CCM’s alumni are well positioned for securing excellent earnings.

On Monday, CCM President Tony Iacono was named to the 2021 ROI Influencers: Power List for the most influential leaders in higher education. He was one of three community college leaders to be so honored.
