Start Your Degree at ACC and SAVE!
No matter your age, attending a public or private university is expensive. However, the total cost of a four-year degree can be drastically reduced by spending the first two years at a community college.
Tuition and Fees Are Low
No matter which college you attend or your intended major, the first two years will be mainly comprised of the same set of classes. For example, every freshman and sophomore has to take English, a biology class, and a college math class. Since these classes are virtually the same at every college, including your local community college, it is wise to complete these requisites there.
The reason comes down to cost. Four-year colleges and universities in Michigan can cost up to $13,000 per year, and that's not including room and board, which is typically close to $10,000 per year! At ACC, in-district students pay $3,720 for a full year of classes (30 credits). In one year that could mean a savings of over $19,000!
