Community Colleges represent an excellent value for your educational dollar. Typically, community colleges offer lower tuition and fees than other public baccalaureate institutions and private colleges.
Generally, though, education is not free, and your personal budget might be tight. Our Student Financial Aid Office provides services to students who need financial assistance to enroll, and manages our scholarship program. If you need a financial boost, contact them early, so you can take full advantage of their aid options. You might also look at other programs, such as Veterans' benefits, student employment, and Workforce Training funds.
National statistics indicate that your annual income prospects improve as you increase your educational attainment. It is worthwhile to think about investing in your education now for personal and financial rewards for your future.
