North Arkansas College (Northark) is garnering national attention after being selected as the 45th Best Community College in the nation and the 8th Best Community College in Arkansas according to consumer website WalletHub’s new list of 2019’s Best & Worst Community Colleges.

Northark rose from 710 U.S. colleges based on evaluation of 19 key indicators of cost and quality.  The state-level analysis included a total of 20 community colleges.

The ranking formula uses three main dimensions, including: 1) Cost and Financing, 2) Education Outcomes and 3) Career Outcomes.  Nineteen metrics were then grouped with related metrics and listed with a corresponding weight.  Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the best community college.  Finally, each school’s weighted average across all metrics was used to calculate its overall score and used to rank-order the list.
