Thu Feb 24, 2022

Brazosport College was recently recognized as one of the top community colleges in Texas for associate degrees by the independent education organization, University HQ.

The list was featured in an article titled “Best Associate Degrees in Texas” on the University HQ website. Brazosport College was ranked No. 10 out of nearly 70 community colleges on the list.

The rankings were compiled with a goal of helping students make their best decision for college. To rank the colleges, University HQ’s fact-based methodology used a variety of data, including tuition costs, admission and retention rates, graduation rates, number of programs offered – online and in-person, graduating salary and financial aid numbers, along with reputation and expert opinion.  

The article encouraged students to complete their associate degrees, highlighting the many benefits of attending a community college.

“Texas college students can take advantage of their community college system and complete some of the best associate degrees in the nation,” University HQ stated in an excerpt from its story.  “In fact, this option makes terrific sense financially, as community college credits are typically cheaper than most any other type of school.

“Associate programs in Texas also provide students with smaller class sizes and instructors who are as capable as any in the state’s top universities,” the story added. 

The organization also ranked Brazosport College No. 80 on its list of Texas colleges with the best bachelor’s degree. Brazosport College was the highest-ranked public community college on the list, which primarily consisted of universities and four-year schools.

According to a statement on the organization’s website, University HQ’s goal with these rankings were to present an objective and unbiased view of colleges so that students can set reasonable expectations, discover outstanding schools and embark on a path toward their best lives.
