Community college enrollment has ballooned in the last few years with good reason. An increasing number of four-year public and private colleges have established transfer articulation agreements with their two-year partners that virtually guarantee the transferability of coursework. There are numerous models of acceptance but most are based upon the completion of an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree comprising up to 60 hours of general education and lower level elective courses. Community colleges offer reasonably low tuition rates and have an open enrollment admission policy. If you’re not certain that you want to “go away” to a four-year institution after completing high school, your local community college may be the answer for your educational needs.
