Yes, because freshman entry and lower division transfer is often treated the same. For both, they require HS transcripts, SAT/ACT scores (if any) and college transcripts, if any courses were taken, less than 60 semester units. Just be sure to take classes that will transfer. A great tool would be assist.org. Some JCs offer high school-jump start programs where you complete the last 2 years of HS in the CC level setting, and these 2 years are the same as the 2 years you would have to take in college anyway! And those units transfer, but you will be considered an upper division transfer... not a freshman applicant. This option is great if you want to save 2 years of school and upper division transfer is a lot easier than trying to get into a college at the freshman level. It is possible to do this. However, unless the courses from the community college will transfer to the university, you may be spinning your wheels. This is because the university could require the same courses for your degree! Many community colleges have agreements with universities and so have a list of courses that will transfer. The answer varies widely depending on the college in question. Many (probably) most will be fine with it, but the safest thing to do is always to ask them directly.

A local community college or university should offer some classes in photography. Art schools or community art centers are another resource for finding these classes.

Generally a University has degrees that take four years or longer to obtain. Community colleges usually offer the first two years of classes of university study. They also offer classes leading to a trade.

About 90 students are in a class at the university of minnesota in Saint Paul. The prerequisite classes that freshman mostly take can get up to 500 students. When you get into you major classes the class size is way smaller. My business classes are only 15 to 20 students. I personally prefer big classes though. They are easier because so many kids do poorly and that forces the teacher to curve the class more. If possible take big classes!

You can take CSI classes at your local community college or university. You can also takes CSI classes online although you have to make sure the classes are legitimate.
