You can stop in at your home county community college and ask for an application. You can also speak with an enrollment specialist in the admissions area. They will appropriately direct you, and give you all the information necessary in terms of the process. It is relatively an easy process. When you are in your first semester, make sure you see an career counselor so that you can choose your overall career goals and objectives. The community college system is a great place to start!

If you have a GED, and have chosen to pursue a bachelor's degree the answer is, you can!

After completing your associates degree, you can then transfer to the four year school of your choice. I would advise you complete the associates first, however, if you do not wish to that you can transfer earlier however the four year institutions typically want to see a good solid two semesters before they make an admissions decision.
