ECC Named a Top College for Hispanic Students

The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education Magazine has once again named El Camino College as one of the “Top 100 Schools for Hispanics” in the nation. 

Each year the magazine recognizes America’s colleges and universities with the most Hispanic students, based on enrollment figures collected by the U.S. Department of Education. In the August/September 2019 edition, El Camino College was ranked No. 15 out of the top 100 two-year colleges nationwide for Hispanic enrollment in 2017. 

Additionally, ECC placed in the top 10 for Hispanic students earning engineering degrees in 2017 among both two-year and four-year colleges and universities across the country. 

“This recognition from The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education highlights our focus on helping our diverse student body achieve their academic goals,” said El Camino College President Dena P. Maloney. “Our Hispanic students are often the first in their families to attend college. No matter the challenge, El Camino is firmly committed to removing barriers to our students’ success.” 

El Camino College enrollment includes more than 33,000 students; Hispanic students represent more than half of the student population. The college offers approximately 100 degree and 100 certificate programs for students interested in transferring to a university or preparing for a rewarding career.
