Why Obtain a Baccalaureate Degree at a U.S. Community College?
Students from countries outside of North America are increasingly turning to United States community colleges to pursue their baccalaureate (four year) degrees. The reasons for this trend include:
- Tuition at community colleges, even out-of-state tuition for non-residents, is significantly less than traditional four year colleges and universities.
- The community college baccalaureate programs share the same accreditation process as other colleges and universities. They are eligible for acceptance to Graduate level education.
- There are flexible English Proficiency Requirements and assistance in improving English language skills.
- The programs are geographically dispersed and varied in subject matter. (Click here to view four-year degrees offered at community colleges.)
- They provide an affordable way to experience U.S. culture.
- Class sizes are smaller.
