Quick TipQuick Tip: Consider Community College

If you're concerned about the high costs of a four-year college, you may want to attend a community college for the first two years, then transfer to a four-year school. Chances are, you'll save thousands on tuition and wind up with the same degree. What's more, community college can be a great option if you're juggling school and work, since many offer a wide array of night classes.
