Dr. Jeanie Webb is President of Rose State College in Midwest City, Oklahoma. She is a product of the community college system. There are many benefits to attending a junioir college. Some key advantages include:
- Non-traditional Students
- Specialty Programs and Cooperative Programs with Local Businesses
Many times students don't even consider their local community college because they believe they are settling for something less, but junior college shouldn't be considered settling. Through partnerships with larger universities, classes transfer and degree plans smoothly transition to the next college.
Many times, the cost of a community college will be 25% that of a major university. By attending your first two years at a community college, students often avoid $50,000 or more in unnessary debt.
When you graduate from your university with your 4-year degree, nobody will be concerned your first two years were at a community college. I argue it will be applauded because it shows where you started and that you worked to get to the university your last two years.
To learn more about your local community college, check with your high school counselor or do an internet search for community colleges in your area.
