Before you're even done with high school, you're tasked with deciding what you'd like to do for a career.

Pros of Going to a Community College vs. a 4-year University

Maybe whatever you've chosen to pursue requires a higher education. And if you don't win any scholarships, get help from family, or take out loans (don't even get me started on student loans), you need to be prepared to pay an arm and a leg to attend a four-year university.

The high cost of tuition is one of the many reasons that people consider community college.

At a community college, you can take all the same pre-requisite classes that a four-year university has at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, you don't have to pay to live or park your car on campus, which can be another huge expense.
