Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Diane Melville is my hero and honestly this book is my new favorite! What I love is that she knows her stuff because she lived it! I recommend this book to all students who want to save 40,000 plus dollars by getting their Associates Degree in addition to being admitted to their dream school. I also recommend this book to all community college advisors that work with transfer students. The community college advantage is really a game changer because it makes everyone realize that community colleges are pathways to the Ivy League and all schools! " - Ellen Goldberg, District Director of Transfer Programs and Services at the City Colleges of Chicago

The book will answer several questions on the minds of high school seniors who want to apply to their local community colleges but are uncertain about opportunities and advantages that a community college education might offer them.

Melville explains the benefits of going to community college and what prospective students need to know about the experience. She argues that going to community college and transferring to a four year school is a great way to cut costs and find more educational flexibility. She offers tips on successful program construction, getting financial aid, where to transfer, and how to get into the top schools. A final chapter focuses on career planning and thinking about employment. She also provides a resource guide to financial aid and other resources. M

Suggests ways students can make the most of their time in community college and ease their transfer to a four-year institution or job.
