Community College Team

USA TODAY’s All-USA Community College Academic Team recognizes exceptional students at the nation’s community colleges. Judges consider grades, academic rigor, growth and how well the students use their education to benefit their schools and communities. The program is administered by Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. Each school may nominate two students. Phi Theta Kappa notifies community college presidents about the program in September. Nomination deadline is early December and the teams are announced in April.
