Community College Tuition is Affordable

 by: Michael Carter

Community colleges are local colleges that offer two year degrees and certifications. Students can take classes at community college and earn credits toward a two year or four year degree program.

Community college tuition rates can be quite affordable for anyone wishing to persue a college degree. On average community college tuition is lower than four year universities.

The national average college tuition cost for public universities is $4,694 per year for in state residents. This figure includes both tuition rates and fees for a full time student. The average college tuition cost at private colleges and universities is around $20,000 per year in tuition and fees.
