Six Keys to Saving by Starting at Community College – NYTimes.com.
This was an interesting piece I discovered (via Twitter – follow me @profseitz) about students and families making conscious decisions to attend community colleges. What a great potential step for students to get a quality education at an affordable price for two years and then transfer to a four-year school! Here at GPC we have TAG agreements that allow our students to have their first two years “guaranteed” to satisfy all core requirements at a number of four-year institutions. It really does make sense!
Too, my summer classes are typically filled with students from the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and other local four-year schools because these students know they can get a course fulfilled very economically, while ensuring a high quality education.
