Will going to community college really save that much money over a four-year college or university?

Yes! Taking advantage of articulated courses offers college credit at no tuition cost, saving valuable time and money. Plus, there is tremendous cost savings in attending a community college first. On average, here is a breakdown of annual college costs in California based on a 12 unit semester which is considered a full load of classes (excluding books and room and board).

You can save over $5,000 in two years verses the cost of a California State University and close to $60,000 in two years over a private university. And even more if you get a jump start by taking advantage of articulated course while in high school!
