4 ways to save time and money on your bachelor degree (PART 4- Community Colleges)

Hi Friends,

One of the best ways to save money on your bachelor degree is to earn your general education credits at a community college. The cost of tuition at a community college is significantly less that that of a university. However, it’s best to take on this endeavor with a plan. I recommend the following:
1. Find out the general education requirements of the bachelor degree program that you want to transfer into.

2. Meet with your academic counselor to take courses that are equivalent to the required courses in program of your interest.

3. Don’t take any courses that are not required for transfer.  Using this option will cut down the cost of your education significantly.

I hope you have enjoyed this series. Feel free to ask any questions in the comment box below.
