More and more students are choosing to attend college to help meet their personal or professional goals. Your specific goals, combined with today’s competitive job market, are two factors to consider when choosing a college, but as a modern-day student, you have many other factors to consider before making a final decision:

  • Modality (online versus classroom-based courses)
  • Length of time in school (two-year versus four-year programs)
  • Type of college (public, private, or community college)
  • Location
  • Major/area of study
  • Cost

This guide can help you narrow your options based on your goals so you can find the college that is right for you with three primary post-secondary options in mind:

  1. The traditional four-year college
  2. The career-focused post-secondary college
  3. The cost-effective community college

You can gain valuable insight into each of these options to help ensure you maximize your college education. Read through this guide, digest it, and find the college experience best for you.
