If you really want to go to college, but you have a serious problem with how to pay for it, one of your best options is to enroll at a community college for your first two years.
You won’t find a cheaper school than your local community college. And you can take classes there for two years, earn your associate’s degree if you want, and then transfer to a four-year school to pursue your bachelor’s degree.
If transferring to another college is your goal, make sure you maintain a really good grade point average. Some colleges are really strict when it comes to admitting transfer students. Even some public colleges are making it difficult for in-state residents to transfer in (because they can charge out-of-state students so much more).
