Earn a Degree for Less: The Benefits Of Attending a Community College

There’s no doubt that deciding what to do after high school is such a huge decision. While many graduates are likely to pursue their college education at big-league universities, others choose to attend classes at community colleges for a variety of reasons. One of these reasons is that enrolling in a community college course is more advantageous for them.

 

Community College Benefits: What You Need to Know

While a community college may not provide the same kinds of amenities that a university does, it’s still a popular choice among those who are looking for a way to earn a degree without breaking the bank. If you’re still on the fence on this matter, Goodwill Car Donations has rounded up the benefits of enrolling at a community college.

  1. It’s cheaper.

Almost everybody knows this. Community colleges offer degrees at much lower costs than universities. In fact, pursuing a course at a typical community college in the U.S. will only cost you around $8,000 per year while a four-year course at a university will cost you up to $18,000 per year.

  1. Professors are focused on teaching.

Did you know that based on Bureau of Labor Statistics data, community college professors spend more of their time teaching and working with students while university professors spend most of theirs conducting original research?

Furthermore, most accomplished professors prefer to teach in community colleges because it allows them to pursue their personal interests while teaching. This is something that most university professors don’t get to experience.

  1. You get a chance to improve your transcript.

If you apply for a university scholarship straight out of high school, you’ll need to have straight A’s. Otherwise, you won’t likely be admitted. In contrast, you can easily enroll at a community college. In pursuing a course there, you’d be able to improve yourself and earn good grades, which you can then use as your ticket to a scholarship for a four-year course at a university.

  1. It’s flexible.

Education in community colleges is flexible since it gives students a slew of opportunities to earn extra credits for college. Moreover, since courses are offered at a much lower cost, students can choose to explore other fields and interests.

  1. Smaller class size.

Since community colleges have smaller class size, each student receives their professor’s individual attention and help. Aside from this, it’s easier for students to have access to their professors during office hours and spend more time with them.
