Washington Monthly magazine’s first-ever ranking of “Best Two-Year Colleges for Adult Learner” ranked College of the Canyons among the top 25 schools.

Coming in at No. 21, COC made the list with 12 other two-year colleges in California.

Washington Monthly analyzed data from 1,178 two-year colleges to create its list of the top 100 two-year colleges in the nation.

College of the Canyons scored 17 points – four out of four for ease of transfer, seven out of nine for flexibility of programs, and six out of six for adult student services.

A valuable resource for adult learners is the adult reentry program, which helps new, returning and continuing adult students who are 25 years of age and older choose the right classes.
