Community colleges were built to offer more opportunity for education and to provide more benefits to people who live in United States. Through this supportive system of education, various types of students are given the opportunity to have second or third chances in improving and developing their knowledge. This is crucial, I believe, for it provides the society with more prepared individuals who would contribute to the community. There is no doubt four-year universities are more acknowledged institutions than community colleges.
some students decided to go to community college for saving money in two years. If students decide go to community college, universities would accept transfer credit that if from community college. So students would save money and time at community college. Although some students could go to university with high grade, some students couldn’t go to university directly because of low grade at high school. In other words, some students couldn’t go to university directly because of high school grade.
