Why Families Should Consider a Community College

Consider a Community CollegeConsider A Community College

I just completed reading a recent article on why families should consider a community college. After reflecting on it I was motivated to blog some benefits of community colleges and why families should consider them in the student’s first and second year in college.

  1. The first one is obvious. The cost. Community colleges cost thousands of dollars less than a 4-year state university or private college.
  2. Second, over the years many states have produced excellent community colleges that allows students to take quality classes that will transfer to a 4-year school (as a Minnesotan, I am proud to say that we have some of the best community colleges in the nation).
  3. Third, by attending a community college, it allows many students you wish to be close to home to do so.

In summary, a community college should be a consideration for many families especially when the cost is a major factor.
