Community Colleges/Junior Colleges

communityCommunity Colleges and Junior Colleges are two-year institutions that award associate’s degrees and sometimes certificates in certain career-related subjects. These two-year colleges usually have less strenuous admissions standards and tend to be less expensive than four-year colleges and universities. Because of this, some students choose to attend a two-year college first to earn an associate’s degree, and then they transfer to a four-year school to receive a bachelor’s degree. If this is done, taking courses that can be transferred is highly recommended.

Community colleges are public and non-residential, while junior colleges are private with students living on campus or in the surrounding community. Typically community colleges are open admissions. They are open to those 18 years of age or older. However, to be placed into a major, the individual must have a high school diploma, GED, or be placed according to ability to benefit.
