EPCC was once again named the top Community College in the nation in the number of Associate degrees awarded to Hispanics. 

The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine (THOHE) puts out a list of Top 100 Colleges and Universities for their Hispanic issue.


For the past 25 years The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine has been the leading news source for higher education in the Hispanic community. 

To be able to be on the list, schools need to achieve certain requirements.


The requirements consist of the following: Total Bachelor’s Degrees Granted, Graduate Student Enrollment, Undergraduate Enrollment (2- and 4- Year Schools).

If a college meets these standards they are added onto the lists. To be named number one means that the school must have achieved excellence in each of these categories.

EPCC is ranked number in Hispanic enrollment with 84% of the schools population being Hispanic. EPCC beat the following schools:

2. East Los Angeles College

3. Lone Star College System

4. Houston Community College

5. Mt San Antonio College

6. Santa Ana College

7. Tarrant County College District

8. San Antonio College

9. Austin Community College District

This is the ninth year that EPCC has achieved this title.
