Many students complete an associate degree at a community college, then transfer to a four-year college or university to complete their bachelor's degree.

Students complete lower-level coursework during the first two years at a lower cost, because community college tuition is generally less expensive. Upon transferring they complete upper level coursework in their chosen field.

Annual Tuition Comparison (2016-17)
