Private Colleges and Universities
Private Colleges and Universities provide a unique atmosphere and many times a smaller setting where you can earn a four-year degree. Generally, tuition costs at private schools are higher than state schools, but many are able to offer strong financial aid packages that can make them an option worth considering.
State and Community Colleges
State and Community Colleges offer a variety of options. You can earn a two-year associate degree before transferring to a state university. Plus, many of these schools now offer four-year degrees as well, at about half the tuition cost of some state universities.
Career, Technical and Trade Schools
Career, Technical and Trade Schools may be the way to go if you have a specific occupation in mind and want a program that involves hands-on learning experiences. There are both public and private options with varying costs, and financial aid is often available.
