It is a common direction for students to choose to complete their general college education while attending community college. The decision to spend the first couple years of your higher education at a community college could come from the desire to save money. The good news is that, for those choosing to take advantage of the community college experience, there is an option to eventually transfer into a university.
Also, if you plan to switch to a university, you should know that there are many schools across the country the offer scholarships for transfer students.
