Community colleges are great for students who do not know what they want to study yet, and are just wanting to take their basic core courses that are required by most universities.
A community college is also cheaper than a four year school. The average tuition and fees for a full-time student at a community college is $2,713. For a student going to a four-year school full-time the tuition is $7,605.
Going to a community college also offers smaller classes. This results in the professor knowing your name and getting a little more attention from your teacher if you need help on something specific you are studying.
Many two-year schools have a pact with four-year colleges in the same state, that allows a student to effortlessly transfer their credits once they graduate with their associates degree.
Another good thing about a community college is that they offer not only an associates degree in general education but they have two-year degrees in certain areas of study.
This makes it so a student can get a job after two years of school. Since not all jobs require a bachelor’s degree.
There are many advantages of going to a community college and can really work as a stepping stone to point you in the right direction.
