Making A Mark On History...
Collin College was one of 19 programs in the nation to be named a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education by the National League of Nursing. Collin College is the first and only institution in Texas to earn this prestigious designation and joins Johns Hopkins University and Villanova University as recipients.

Collin College has the lowest tuition of the 125 public and private colleges and universities in the state of Texas.

Competing with students from nine countries on four continents, Collin College students Adrian Boysselle, David Golynskiy and Deepak Joseph discovered a new main belt asteroid, located in the region between Mars and Jupiter. The students were presented research awards as part of NASA’s International Asteroid Search Campaign and their names and discovery were published at the Minor Planet Center, an office of the International Astronomical Union located at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

Collin College boasts three U.S. Professors of the Year as named by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Collin College is the only two-year institution with three winners and matches Williams College and Kansas State University for the most in the nation.

Collin College’s chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year institutions, ranked third in the world and first in Texas after receiving the Distinguished Chapter, Distinguished Member, Distinguished College Project and Distinguished Honors in Action Project awards.
