Consider Including Community Colleges On Your List
Seniors, you’re putting together a list of colleges and universities to research and apply. Consider looking into community colleges. These local schools present you with a different pathway to earning a bachelor’s degree. If you are not ready to commit to a four year program and are looking to stay close to home or would benefit from the reduced tuition, community college may be your answer.
Many four year colleges and universities are expanding their outreach and formal programs providing a way for qualified community college students to transfer. These four year schools provide support to help applicants navigate the application process and generous scholarships to help with tuition. Students may often transfer with little or no loss of academic credit. Students who are then ready to earn their bachelor’s will find many agreements and innovative partnerships that allow community college students access to top-ranked programs in nursing, technology, business and science programs.
