Should you go to Community College?

Times Have Changed

Community colleges were once less favorably looked upon.  However today, things are different. “CCs” are funded by the county they are located in and are far less expensive than four-year schools. Classes at CC’s are often taught by top professors and professionals in their given fields.  These professors often currently work in the business world and thus are able to contribute their real world experiences to the classroom.  

Some professors hold PhDs from elite universities and have taken up day jobs at community colleges because they enjoy teaching on the side.

Community Colleges have made higher education accessible to everyone, no matter what a student’s financial situation.  While still providing an excellent educational experience that can be easily built upon.  

Additionally, transferring to a four year college couldn’t be easier. Don’t believe us? Check out this past blog post!

The Advantages of Community College

A community college degree is also directly transferable to most state universities, if you have good grades. Transferring credits typically only works when you have achieved a C or better in each class.  However, some four-year colleges only accept A’s and B’s.  If your goal is to transfer credits from a two-year school to a four-year school, it’s important to research the grades your desired school will accept. 

Studying at a CC is beneficial if you already have an idea of what you want to study.  If you keep transferring and employment goals in mind, you’ll reach your goals before you know it.
