There are thousands of colleges to choose from, so choosing the right one for you may seem a little overwhelming.
As you start to investigate colleges, you will want to pick colleges that meet your needs. As you do your detective work, remember that your college education is one of the most important investments you will ever make. It's worth taking the time to make sure you make the best possible decision for yourself.
When you think about college you are probably thinking about a four-year institution and not a community college. But did you know that more than 13 million students are enrolled in community colleges across the United States or that students that graduate with an associate degree (two-year degree) from a community college and transfer to a university are just as likely to earn a bachelor’s degree as those students who start at a university?
