Community College

Community colleges offer many degree and vocational programs. They are also the primary resource for transferring to universities. While there are no entrance requirements for entering a community college, obtaining a degree and transferring will mean completing college level coursework. The better prepared you are academically coming into a community college, the better you will do there. It is therefore recommended that prospective community college students complete the A to G requirements.
