It may be better than no college at all. I attended a community college and ended up being the president of the honor society and getting a full ride university college scholarship I never would have had the chance to get otherwise.

The benefits of attending a community college can include the lower cost of tuition, the ability to take prep courses (reading, math, ESL, etc.), and a high chance of transferable credit, vocational development programs. Smaller sized classes are a plus.

It is important to remember that if you choose to live at home and attend a college, to make sure you progress socially and personally. It can be very restrictive on a person's overall growth if they never leave the "high school" mindset of dependency and immaturity.

No matter the quality of your institution, remember to improve on the whole you. You can always save yourself some money and become a transfer student as an sophomore,junior or senior to a high-quality state college. This method can also be cheaper.

Additionally, community colleges may give you a better education than you expect, and you may get more one on one attention. However, many community colleges are over-subscribed and crammed, so avoid those.

Community college is a worthwhile alternative if for some reason you can't attend anything else at the time. Community college can be an excellent place to start. Especially if you plan on attending 4 or more years of school. You can remain close to home, get your prerequisites out of the way, and spend a minimal amount of money doing it! Or if you plan on attending for an associates degree and make every attempt to do well in whatever you choose. That makes just as much of an impression on prospective employers as a famous school.

Absolutely anything educational you can do for yourself is worthwhile. Always. There is nothing lacking in community colleges, in fact, they may have more of a scoop on potential local jobs. Another way to help yourself is to prepare yourself for employment by finding out what employers are learning. Remember, sometimes what's considered a "mediocre" place to learn is just based on popularity and has nothing to do with quality.

If the community college is far away from home and expensive, it may not be worth it. Remember, there are scholarships available at top universities, ROTC scholarships, and scholarships for things such as being a Eagle Scout. Community colleges can be really over-subscribed, which means it will be hard to take the course you want. Community colleges also have few opportunities for research.
