There are so many colleges and universities that are available. In fact, there are so many that searching for the one you want to go to can be overwhelming. There are also several different combinations of college options that are available to the average student.

If you don't have enough credits for a university, or if your looking for a two-year degree in a certain field, a great way to earn those credits or that degree is to take a few classes at a technical college or a community college. Technical colleges are a great way to earn an associate degree in a science or technology field of your choosing. 

Community colleges are a great way to earn more credits towards a university or an associate degree in law, agriculture, and other non-technical fields.
