Community Colleges
 
Community colleges offer students the opportunity to save money, prepare for transfer to a four-year college, get ready for a career, try out college and take advantage of a flexible schedule. According to the American Association of Community Colleges, 44 percent of all undergraduate college students are enrolled at a community college. Giving your students a reality check while still in high school will increase their chances of a successful outcome once they enroll in a community college.
 
There are 12 Maricopa Community Colleges in Arizona.
