Other Kansas schools named to the Top 150 were Colby Community College, Flint Hills Technical College in Emporia, Hutchinson Community College, North central Kansas Technical College in Beloit and Hays, Northwest Kansas Technical College in Goodland, Pratt Community College, Salina Area Technical College, and Seward County Community College and Area Technical School.
