Community College

Community colleges are usually public institutions that focus on providing accessible, flexible courses. Although some CCs have dorms, most CC students commute from home and many are working full or part-time. Students can take one-off courses or pursue 2-year associate’s degrees or professional certifications. Often, credits from a community college can be transferred to a 4-year university. Some community colleges now offer 4-year degrees. 

Many first-generation students attend community college because of lower costs, smaller class sizes, and simple application processes. Some community colleges will offer things like student activities and organizations, residence halls, and competitive sports teams, while others may lack some or all of these features.
