Why an Associate Degree Makes Sense
Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute is one of the best values in higher education.
Here are a few reasons why:
- Easy transition from high school
Most community college campuses are small compared to universities, which means class size is typically smaller as well. Instructors are
much more accessible and can provide more personal attention. The average class size at most community colleges is 20 students.
- Save tens of thousands of dollars
The price of a state four-year institution is nearly triple that of community college tuition. The average annual tuition for community college
is $2,402 versus $6,585 for public 4-year colleges and $25,143 for private 4-year colleges.
- Many advantages to living at home
If you live at home and go to a community college, you get to save on two expensive costs – dorm fees and meal plans.
Not to mention roommate problems that can add stress during a difficult period of transition.
- More time to think about your career path
The first two years of college are a period of feeling out classes and exploring career paths. You’ll also be able to knock out your
general education requirements in the first two years, so that you’re covered no matter what major you apply for when transferring.
- It will boost your confidence!
Starting at a community college can be great for your GPA and overall confidence.
