Reps. Theis and Knoblach Congratulate St. Cloud Technical and Community College for National Ranking

Friday, August 24, 2018

St. Cloud, MINN – A recent survey by Wallet Hub of the nation’s best community colleges ranked St. Cloud Technical and Community College 13th in the nation. Rankings were based on a number of factors including education outcomes, career outcomes, affordability, and more.

“Congratulations to SCTCC for being a top fifteen, nationally-recognized community college,” said Rep. Tama Theis, R-St.Cloud. “We are incredibly fortunate to have outstanding post-secondary educational opportunities for students in our area, and I will continue to support our outstanding local colleges and universities, and the students they serve.”

“Many of us in the St. Cloud area understand the good work SCTCC does in preparing students to join the workforce and it is nice to see these efforts gain national recognition,” said Rep. Jim Knoblach, R-St. Cloud. “We have been working in the House to make higher education more affordable and the hope is tools such as workforce development scholarships we established this biennium will be key in allowing more people access to the strong programming at SCTCC and other institutions in our state."
