Know the Differences
There are many types of colleges and universities and it is important to know the differences when choosing the school that is best for you.
For starters, it is important to realize the difference between two-year and four-year colleges.
A two-year college is a community college or trade school. At a two-year college, students typically learn a specific trade or take general education courses that will transfer to a four-year college. Two-year colleges typically cost less than four-year colleges. Two-year college graduates earn an Associate Degree.
A four-year school is a traditional college or university. Students take general education courses as well as courses specific to their major. Four-year schools can be public or private. Students who graduate from a four-year school earn a Bachelor’s Degree
