    It's so affordable, great to go for two years then transfer, and it prepares you for a 4 year university.

    If commuting daily isn't an issue for a student, starting at GRCC can save thousands of dollars each year. A few professors will also help students to save even more.

    It's a great education for Community College prices. Sure, it won't get you a Bachelors Degree but it can certainly get you some credits toward it.

    It's about a quarter of the price of a four year university. You get basically the same classes and same work load. Most classes will transfer.

    I think GRCC would be a great place to start,if you are thinking about going to an University GRCC is the best place to start, small class sizes and the professors always have time to talk to you and they are good at emailing you back on time.
