Webinar 6/5: How International Students Can Apply To US Community Colleges

There are about 90,000 international students currently enrolled in community colleges in the United States according to the American Association of Community Colleges. Community colleges are affordable alternatives to four-year colleges, often with more lenient admissions requirements, that can open doors to more prestigious schools.

Once you are accepted at a community college, you can earn college credits towards a two-year associate’s degree, and apply those credits toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university. If all your credits from community college are accepted, you will only need two more years at the four-year college to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Attending community colleges can be a great pathway to earning your bachelor’s degree in the US because many community colleges have relationships with neighboring four-year colleges – some which guarantee admission to community college graduates.
