Community colleges are 2-year public colleges in the U.S. that offers the first 2 years of a bachelor's degree. Students can earn an Associate's Degree​ at a community college while paying lower tuition fees. They then have the option to transfer to universities across the U.S. to complete year 3 and 4 to obtain a bachelor's degree. ​This is commonly known as the University Transfer Degree. 

Entry Requirement


International students are eligible to enter U.S. community colleges once they have completed high school in their home country or attained the minimum age of 16 or 17 in some states. SAT or ACT is normally not needed as part of community college admission. Most community colleges require proof of English proficiency such as IELTS, TOEFL or Duolingo. 

Easier Admission Process to U.S. Universities


Community college students often get easier entry to some top universities in the U.S. Many traditional universities have partnerships or agreements with community colleges that allow community college students to be automatically admitted into the university once they meet the transfer requirements, such as completing pre-requisite coursework and satisfactory grade point average. Many universities also offer preferential entry to community college students from the same state.
