“Community Colleges are known for being accessible and catering to literally ALL varieties of students,” the editors of College Consensus explain; in fact, as they say, one can “think of Community Colleges as Post Secondary for the People.” As the editors explain, “One primary contrast between community colleges and four year colleges and universities is the fact that everyone is admitted.” Moreover, there are many reasons that students choose community college: “Community College Programs might interest someone working towards a specific career path. They might be required to take additional courses, achieve a vocational certificate, and/ or an associates degree to get there.” In other cases, “Some students are not sure what they want to do, but know they are eventually trying to attend a four year school with the ultimate goal of walking away with a bachelor’s degree.”

For all of these diverse students and more, College Consensus is dedicated to helping students and their families make the right choice for them. “More and more, community colleges are trying to cater to the busy lifestyles of adult learners,” the editors explain, “and, therefore, there are more and more community college online options.” Whatever their goal, College Consensus wants to help students choose the online community college program that is right for them.
