The Top 100 list, published June 12, ranks Seminole State No. 20 in the nation for graduating students with Associate in Arts (A.A.) degrees.
The magazine’s rankings are based on National Center for Education Statistics and represent approximately 5,000 institutions that confer degrees and certificates.
For all degrees, Seminole State is ranked No. 44 for its number of students graduating with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degree.
In other categories, Seminole State was ranked:
- No. 47 for associate degrees awarded in Nursing

- No. 72 for associate degrees awarded to Hispanic students
Details can be found on Community College Week’s website.
Seminole State was also noted for its minority student success in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. In May, the college made that publication’s Top 100 list for its number of minority students graduating with an A.A. or A.S. degree.
