A community college is a 2 year institution which offers an
Associated degree. It serves a community or a small geographical area
because its students are all commuters. There are no dormitories .
Community colleges are quite inexpensive compared to 4 year institutions. I
am taking a 3 credit course presently which costs about $150. There are
few social activities compared with a 4 year college. A community college
is state supported so costs are low. I believe I am correct in saying that
there are no sports teams at community colleges.
We also have junior colleges that offer Associated degrees. These
are private and much more expensive than community colleges. Junior
colleges have dorms, and many of the same activities as 4 year
Four year colleges are either state supported or private. Many
states have excellent state supported colleges.
After you graduate from college with a Bachelor's degree, you may
seek further education. This is called post graduate. It can lead to a
Master's degree or a Doctorate or just be one or 2 courses beyond your
bachelor''s all called post graduate. Hope this is helpful. Heidi
