Another Top 5 National Ranking for State Tech

Published on May 11, 2021

With the new summer semester just days away, State Technical College of Missouri is proud to announce we were recently ranked as one of the top five college in the nation by Value Colleges.

In their recent article Value Colleges featured only fully accredited institutions that have proven their value for graduates on the job and on the job market.

“Value Colleges rankings are based on verified data from sources including IPEDS and Niche. Programs are ranked according to factors including cost and student satisfaction, so students can feel certain their choice of program will have a positive impact on their career.”

 The ranking mentioned our 99% job placement rate and our relationships with over 500 industry partners on our advisory boards. They also recognized our high graduation rates, and we deliver amazing hands-on education

 “This national ranking was interesting in that it included a number of schools we don’t normally see. State Tech was the highest ranked Midwest college. 50% of the top ten colleges were from California, potentially a result of high wages in California. I wonder if cost of living was included in the ranking calculation we would have rose to the top spot? Top 5 in the Country is still very good and we appreciate the Value Colleges recognition. Our advice to seniors still thinking about going to State Tech… We are 96% full and expect to set another enrollment record this fall. Get your application complete today,” said State Tech President Dr. Shawn Strong.

Outside of the Value Colleges ranking, State Tech is also wanted #1 in the nation by WalletHub, number 3 in the nation by Forbes Magazine and State Tech is also ranked 4th in the nation by Brookings.
