Find the Community Colleges near you

Not all high school graduates who want to pursue education after high school know what career they want to pursue. Likewise, many high school graduates simply cannot afford the cost of a four year college or university curriculum.

The community or junior college was created to help these students attend college while they define their interests and career options. Community colleges are a much more affordable alternative than the four year program. Most students who choose a major and wish to pursue their career after two years can qualify for a four year academic institution after they graduate from junior college. In fact, many community colleges have outstanding relationships with four year degree colleges and universities.

Community colleges also offer students more flexible programs which allow students to hold jobs and save money while they prepare to continue their education. This fact, the reasonable cost of tuition and the opportunity to make sure the career the student pursues is the right career have helped to boost attendance at community colleges to all-time highs.

The class sizes at community colleges are also reasonable, often as few as 20 students per class. The teaching professors are qualified and students often find it easier to transition from secondary education to college at community colleges. There are many reasons to consider a good, local community college while you sort through your career options
