So you’re looking at schools now that graduation is getting closer, and you have a list of universities for undergrad in mind. Universities are fantastic and absolutely a worthwhile investment. However, a four-year university is not the end-all answer when it comes to higher education. There are other options out there that are just as great, maybe even better than a four-year university. Let’s look at some of them!
A trade school is a great answer for anyone wanting to look into a very specific, niched-down career such as electrician, plumber, or nurse.
A community college is another option. Typically attendees of a community college come from the town, or outlying towns, it resides in. This is a great option to stay close to home, save money, and still obtain an education! Most community colleges will only have a 2-year associate’s option, however, some can partner with bigger universities nearby to give students the option of a bachelor’s degree.
Online school is also a great way to go through school. This can either be done through a typical university or community college, or through an online-only school.
You can also look into private schools for religion or military.
A university isn’t the only option! You don’t have to be attending Yale or Harvard to find success in your higher education studies.
